Who should attend?
This training is intended for districts who have confirmed they plan to use the Colorado State Model Performance Management System for the 2015-16 school year. Superintendents, district/BOCES tech support staff (trainers), and HR staff are welcome to attend, along with 2 evaluators and 2 teacher leaders. Due to space constraints, we ask that districts/BOCES/charter schools bring a maximum of 6-8 people. LEAs currently using the system and have new staff, or would like a refresher, are welcome to attend as well as space permits.
Districts/BOCES/charter schools interested in learning more about the system are encouraged to preview the system by visiting the COPMS website. For those considering implementing COPMS for the 2015-2016 school year, CDE welcomes requests for a system demonstration to assist in making the decision.
