Training Supports and Materials

CDE has created a suite of materials to ensure schools and districts have access to the latest information and resources to support staff trainings and implementation of their evaluation systems. Each includes pertinent talking points that may be used to customize your presentation and any companion resources necessary to complete the training.

2022-23 School Year Orientation Training


The 2022-23 Orientation PowerPoint provides schools, districts, and BOCES with information to share with staff regarding Educator Effectiveness and educator evaluations.  The orientation slide deck serves as a shell and starting point to present relevant information and local protocols and processes for completing educator evaluations in the 2022-23 school year.  It is not meant to be used "as-is".  Information specific to the local district/BOCES needs to be added.

By engaging in the values activities and subsequent discussions, participants can reflect on all aspects of the educator evaluation system, including the system as a whole, weighting of professional practices, measures of student learning/outcomes (MSLs/MSOs), and practices to ensure fair and effective evaluations.

This recorded webinar is intended to follow the values-based discussion and determination of MSL/Os from the Part 1 webinar. This webinar will deepen understanding around the options for setting success criteria for a variety of student learning measures, and provide opportunities for teams to practice several methods for setting success criteria at both the individual and collective levels.
