APS Teacher Rubric "Look For" Document: This "Look For" document is a tool that can be used by both Evaluators and Teachers. It is designed to provide some examples of practices that an educator can engage in to demonstrate the professional practices of the rubric. It is not meant to be a checklist and should be used with the educator's context in mind.
Licensed Employee Development Plans (LEDPs): PGP-Structured PGP-LEDP-
This document explains the processes for developing Professional Growth Plans for all licensed staff, Structured Growth Plans for those educators needing additional supports and Licensed Employee Development Plan for intensive support.
The purpose of a Licensed Employee Development Plan is to improve a non-probationary educator's instructional performance with the desire to prevent a less than effective Final Effectiveness Rating and/or to support the educator in achieving a rating level of “Proficient” or above for one or more Standards.
Evaluators, please contact your HR Director and Learning Community Director with any questions regarding implementation of an LEDP and supporting materials.
Probationary/ Non-Probationary Status
Non-Probationary Evaluation Appeal Process
Probationary/ Non-Probationary Status: According to SB 10-191
Educators earn Non-Probationary status through three (3) consecutive years of effective or higher final effectiveness ratings.
Non-Probationary educators will lose non-probationary status after two (2) consecutive years of less than effective final effectiveness ratings.
Probation Status Explanation- Describes the process APS used in determining effectiveness ratings and the transition from the prior evaluation system to the current evaluation as it relates to earning non-probationary status and current probationary status in APS.
State law requires that each school district provide an appeal process to allow Non-Probationary educators who receive a second consecutive rating of ineffective or partially effective to appeal that rating. The intent of the appeal process is to determine if the final evaluation rating was appropriately applied and identify whether or not an educator retains non-probationary status.
