Uncommon Camden Prep 2014-15 Principal Evaluation Model June 10, 2015 SUMMARY As a New Jersey State approved tool, The Leverage Leadership Performance Model is a set of performance management tools that drive excellent principal performance and can lead to a summative evaluation. This performance model has been published in Leverage Leadership and Driven by Data and has been used in work with over 7,000 school leaders nationwide. The tools utilized in this performance model have been formally embraced by Chicago Public Schools and the New York State Department of Education and they have been embedded in many other districts across the country. When implemented, the tools have successfully led to highest gaining or highest achieving schools in thirteen major urban districts across the country: Baltimore, Chicago, D.C., Memphis, New Orleans, Oakland, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York City, Newark, New Orleans, Rochester, and Sacramento.
The model is built around the seven highest leverage actions that a leader takes to achieve extraordinary
Lever 1: Data-Driven Instruction Lever 2: Observation And Feedback Lever 3: Instructional Planning Lever 4: Professional Development
Lever 5: Student Culture Lever 6: Staff Culture Lever 7: Managing School Leadership Teams All seven levers have been carefully studied and proven to identify the most important instructional and cultural aspects to systematize and implement to guarantee strong student learning.
Each lever has a rubric, and each rubric has four performance levels:
Advanced Proficient Proficient Working Towards Needs Improvement The heart of the Leverage Leadership performance model is the continual self-improvement of the school leader, and the model reflects that emphasis with a continuous flow of data collection throughout the year.
The scores for the rubrics are collected at periodic intervals throughout the year and are stored in an overall dashboard for a global review. For example, student culture rubric scores are gathered in the Fall. Data Driven Instruction Implementation Rubric Scores are captured after the first round of interim assessments, Camden Prep Annual Report Page 17 typically 6 weeks into the school year and the Professional Development Rubric Scores are collected in the mid-winter months. Staff Culture Scores are collected in the late winter before the mid-year evaluation.
To score, read across the four levels of performance for each standard, find the level that best describes the principal’s performance and circle or highlight it. After evaluating for the entire rubric, summarize the best level that describes the principal’s proficiency.
