Becoming an Evaluator Training Provider

Credible, fair and professional evaluations of licensed personnel depend on high quality, effective training for evaluators that are consistent across the state. As required in state law, all performance evaluations must be conducted by an individual who has completed a training in evaluation skills that has been approved by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). As such, any person who conducts an evaluation of school licensed personnel must hold a principal or administrator license or complete a state approved evaluation training program. 

Evaluator Training Providers for the Colorado State Model Evaluation System (Updated January 2015)

There is an annual process for becoming an approved training provider on the Colorado State Model Evaluation System. CDE currently has 57 providers statewide approved to train evaluators on the Colorado State Model Evaluation System and effective evaluation practices. Those providers will participate in a renewal process to continue their designation of being a state-approved Evaluator Training Provider. 

The application process for new providers will take place beginning with a recorded application webinar. This short, 10 minute webinar details the process and timeline if you are interested in becoming an Approved Training Provider on the State Model System. Intent to apply and registraion for a mandatory training is due to Tricia Majors, majors_t@cde.state.co.us no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 2. Please refer to the webinar for complete details and timelines.
