COSA will present a one-day workshop to update District staff, especially superintendents and HR directors, regarding SB 290, the Waiver, and the Framework compliance.
Starting at 9:45 a.m., an ODE representative and Lebanon Superintendent Rob Hess will summarize the timeline and requirements for compliance, now that the State Board of Education has adopted the "Framework" for SB 290 compliance and the federal government has issued a conditional waiver on NCLB, which includes criteria to be met in the evaluation of principals and teachers based on student achievement. Resources and timelines for the year will be shared.
From 11-3 p.m., Attorney Nancy Hungerford will present "Options and Pitfalls to Avoid," addressing (1) Options for structuring the collaborative process, (2) Options for modifying your existing standards and evaluation process, (3) Pitfalls to avoid in collective bargaining regarding evaluation and SB 290-related proposals, and (4) Planning and training needed to make operational the new SB 290 evaluation system, particularly the goal setting for "student learning and growth."
An updated "SB Primer" written by Nancy Hungerford and Kate Dickson, published by the Chalkboard Project, will be provided for all participants.
