Standard for Success, an online educator evaluation and management platform, announces the addition of Louisa County Public Schools in Virginia to its client roster, marking the second Virginia district to employ Standard for Success.

With staff evaluation guidelines evolving across the U.S., Standard for Success’ adaptability to different rubrics and models was a selling point for Mineral, Va.,-based Louisa County Public Schools.

The district, which has six schools with an enrollment of 4,800 students, is able to meet the new requirements of the Virginia Department of Education’s (VDOE) more stringent teacher and principal evaluation model through Standard for Success’ online portal accessible via a tablet or laptop.

“We’re excited about Standard for Success and the process in which we’ll be able to evaluate personnel electronically,” said J. Douglas Straley, assistant superintendent for administration of Louisa County Public Schools. The platform will go into effect for the 2013-14 school year. “We’re looking forward to the efficiency and congruency Standard for Success provides with Virginia’s state standards.”

This marks the second collaboration with a school entity outside of Indiana for Standard for Success, which is in place in nearly 60 Hoosier school districts. Standard for Success recently partnered with Goochland County Public Schools in Goochland, Virginia.

Standard for Success’ program allows for real-time evaluation of teachers. Teachers can chart professional development goals and division leadership can view school and division-wide summaries and drill down for specifics on particular groups – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
