“The frequency is important because it gives me a clearer picture of what’s going on in the classroom and how I may be able to better support teachers who are working to make changes with their practice. It also provides more feedback to teachers more often.”

Emily Peckham

Principal, Greer Elementary School

“The system that we were using wasn’t really meaningful for everyone who needs to be a part of the process to improve instruction.”

Karen Schauer

Superintendent, Galt Joint Union Elementary School District

“In general, high quality instruction is critical for student learning. If a teacher is ineffective and has been supported to improve and has not, the dismissal process should not take months to complete.”

River Oaks Elementary Principal Lois Yount opens the door to classroom 9 unannounced. She's got a notebook in hand and a list of items she wants to check that the teacher is working on. She quietly stands in the back of the room, observing the teacher for five to 15 minutes, before moving on to the next two to four classrooms she planned to visit that day.

The process might be played out several times a semester and result in a short handwritten note from the principal followed by both a more meaningful conversation and a traditional 30-minute formal evaluation later.
