Summer Training

In summer 2014, RIDE will be providing various workshops for new and returning evaluators.

Registration is open for summer evaluator workshops and academies

Registration is open for the Summer Workshops for returning teacher, support professional, and building administrator evaluators in LEAs implementing the Rhode Island Model. The two-day, in-person workshop will be offered between the weeks of July 6th and August 17th.

For new evaluators in LEAs implementing the Rhode Island Model, RIDE will be offering a four day, in-person Summer Academy. The 2013 Summer Academies for new evaluators will be offered July 14th -17th and August 11-14th, and will mirror the trainings that were provided for new evaluators last summer.

Registration is also open for the Non- Rhode Island Model Summer Workshops for returning teacher, support professional, and building administrator evaluators in LEAS implementing evaluation systems other than the Rhode Island Model. The one-day, in-person workshop will be offered between the weeks of July 6th and August 17th.

Returning and new evaluators can register for a Summer Workshop or a Summer Academy on the eRIDE Workshop Calendar at: www.eride.ri.gov/workshopreg/main.aspx

The summer evaluator Workshops and Academies are the next phase in the training continuum for evaluators, and they will be the last sessions funded by our Race to the Top grant. The training topics are being developed in consultation with the educator-evaluation advisory group and will also be based on data collected through the mid-year surveys and ongoing educator-evaluation focus groups. Our main goal is to make the best use of our remaining Race to the Top resources by focusing on the topics that will have the greatest impact on the implementation of educator evaluations in Rhode Island.

AUDIENCE: This two-day training has been developed to support all personnel who evaluate Assistant Principals, Teachers, and Support Professionals using the Rhode Island Models of Teacher, Support Professional and Building Administrator Evaluation.
