Strategies for Improving Achievement

    Principal Continuous Improvement Model
    Shakopee Principals participate in an ongoing, continuous improvement evaluation process.  The documents outline the 5 core competencies that are addressed, and the annual timeline for working through the evaluation process. 
    Teacher Continuous Improvement Model
    All teachers participate in the Shakopee teacher evaluation and continuous improvement process.  The details are described in the following documents: 
    • Continuous Improvement Model:  Detailed explanation of the entire process to insure consistent implementation
    • Teacher Evaluation Rubric:  Teachers are evaluated across 4 domains based on the Charlotte Danielson model (Instructional Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction and Professionalism).
    • Individual Growth Plan:  Teachers set annual improvement goals that are aligned to the school improvement plan, the team goals, and the district strategic plan.  Each teacher meets with his or her principal to review goals.
