Becoming an Approved 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. 

Approved Evaluator Training Providers for the Colorado State Model Evaluation System (Updated November 2016)

The purpose of Approved Evaluator Training Providers is to allow districts using the State Model Evaluation System the opportunity to use evaluator designees when evaluating teachers, principals or specialized service professionals. Evaluator designees do not hold a principal or administrator's license and must therefore be certified by an Approved Evaluator Training Provider in order to conduct evaluations. 

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

The application process for new Approved Evaluator Training Providers is now beginning!  Potential applicants must first review an informational Power Point which details the purpose and timeline for the application process to become an Approved Evaluator Training Provider. The second step in the application process is participation in a 2-day training on Wednesday, February 8th and Thursday, February 9th to be held in the Denver Metro area. Successful completion of these training dates is mandatory as part of the application process to become designated as an Approved Evaluator Training Provider for the State Model Evaluation System. After reviewing the application Power Point, please confirm your intent to apply to serve as an Approved Evaluator Training Provider and register for the February 8th and 9th training dates.  Registration must be received no later than Friday, January 20th, 2017.

Approved Evaluator Training Providers for Systems Other than the Colorado State Model Evaluation System

The purpose of Approved Evaluator Training Provider for a unique evaluation system is to allow districts the opportunity to use evaluator designees when evaluating teachers, principals or specialized service professionals.  Evaluator designees do not hold a principal or administrator’s license and must therefore be certified by an Approved Evaluator Training Provider in order to conduct evaluations using a unique district system.

There is an annual renewal process for current Approved Evaluator Training Providers for a unique evaluation system, and an application process for any new providers that are interested in using evaluator designees in their system. 

If you are interested in becoming a training provider for a unique evaluation system, please contact Courtney Cabrera at 303-866-2332 or Tricia Majors at 303-866-6678 to obtain application information.
