Ed Eval

Timelines for Developing Educator and Self-Directed 1 and  2-year Plans will be distributed on the first day of school.  Please contact Allison or any member of the Ed Eval Work Group as we move through the year if dates need to be extended.  The QEA Ed Eval Work Group works as a joint labor-management team, and deadline dates can be changed if necessary and agreed upon by both sides. 

Any member placed on a Directed Growth plan should contact QEA for assistance.

Any member placed on an Improvement Plan should contact QEA for immediate assistance.  This plan is typically 30 days from start to finish, and the consequences are extremely serious and can lead to termination. 

District-Determined Measures will be used this year in Quincy for data that will count toward your Student Impact Rating.  In Quincy, our contract language calls for 2 years of data using 2 measures (DDMs) each year, for a total of 4 data points.  Politically, we are uncertain as to what direction the Student Impact Rating will take.  There was a great deal of discussion at the BESE meeting in June, and we believe a motion will be made this month to eliminate DDMs and SIR.  It is unclear if BESE members will support eliminating Student Impact Rating.  More to come on this.  For now, please administer your DDM pre-tests, following all protocols.  Scoring and ratings determination has not yet been agreed upon in bargaining between QEA and QPS.  But you must still administer the Fall or pre-portion of the DDM.

VOTE NO ON BALLOT QUESTION #2
We need your help!
Question #2 seeks to increase the number of charter schools across the state. Please join us in fighting this harmful ballot initiative.  Phone banking will be set up for Quincy teachers in September and October.  We’ll also be asking for volunteers to do canvassing (door to door) and other activities. More information will be coming out to buildings soon!
