Implementation Guidance

​General Evaluation Resource Documents

  • Opportunities for Differentiation in the State Model Evaluation System: Guiding Questions and District Examples - In response to feedback from the field, the Educator Effectiveness Unit has created a document to highlight the given flexibilities within the legislation and State Board of Education rules guiding implementation on SB191. 
  • Maximizing the Mid-Year Review - Prior to the beginning of the second semester, the educator being evaluated and the evaluator should review progress to date toward achieving professional goals and measures of student learning/outcomes. 
  • Unique Role Guidance - High level guidance for districts regarding how to evaluate individuals serving in a dual or specialized role. This is not a fully comprehensive document but, rather, offers ideas and points of consideration for districts as they identify and implement the tenets of S.B. 10-191. This guidance may be revised as we learn more about what works best for districts.
  • Videos - Short video series on educator effectiveness, the State Model Evaluation System and preparing for implementation of S.B. 10-191.
  • Fact Sheets - Download fact sheets on commonly requested topics around educator effectiveness.
  • Colorado Education Initiative's S.B. 10-191 Toolkit - The Colorado Initiative's toolkit supports districts in implementing requirements of the state’s new evaluation system. A one-stop-shop for access to resources developed by the Colorado Education Initiative, the Colorado Department of Education, and numerous partner organizations. The toolkit also includes examples of how districts involved in the Colorado Education Initiative's Integration Initiative are implementing the new evaluation requirements.
    • Colorado’s teacher perception survey was developed by the Colorado Education Initiative. These surveys are offered to districts that may voluntarily choose to use them to evaluate and support principals. (This resource relates to measuring professional practices for principal evaluations only)
    • Colorado's student perception surveys were developed for three purposes
      • Provide teachers with meaningful feedback about how their practice impacts student learning.
      • Use student voice and experience in a meaningful way that directly impacts teaching and learning.
      • Serve as an optional additional measure of educator effectiveness in accordance with S.B. 191. (This resource relates to measuring professional practices for teacher evaluations only)
