Data from the pilots Collaborative planning and design Share Out Revised Principal Rubric Whats changed in the rubric as a result of feedback from the field? The current rubric has been shortened in response to feedback from nearly all participants that it felt overwhelming and intimidating due to its size. The language of the professional practices has been made more specific in order to be clearer and more concise in setting performance expectations. Redundancies have been eliminated. The lowest category on the rubric has been changed to Basic. Rubric Structure and Rating Level Focus

O F E B Not evident. This describes practices of a teacher who does not meet state performance standards and is not making progress toward meeting them. The focus of Partially Proficient and Proficient levels is what teachers do on a day to day basis to achieve state performance standards and assure that students are achieving at expected

levels. E R The focus of Accomplished and Exemplary ratings shifts to the impact of the teachers practices on student outcomes. Rubric Structure and Rating Level Focus The focus of the Basic rating is the educator whose performance does not meet state quality standards. The educator rated as Basic is typically performing at a foundational level. Every

educator is expected to perform Basic professional practices in their day-to-day work. W O N The focus of Partially Proficient and Proficient levels is what educators do on a day-to-day basis to achieve state performance standards and assure that students are achieving at expected levels. The focus of Accomplished and Exemplary ratings shifts to the outcomes of the educators practices, including expectations for staff, students, parents and community

members, as a result of practices exhibited under rating levels 2 and 3. Understanding the Scoring Business Rule Look for the first unchecked professional practice. Move one column back to identify the rating for the element. Definition of Principal Effectiveness Effective Principals in the state of Colorado are responsible for the collective success of their schools, including the learning, growth and achievement of both students and staff. As schools primary instructional leaders, effective Principals enable critical discourse and data-driven

reflection about curriculum, assessment, instruction, and student progress, and create structures to facilitate improvement. Effective Principals are adept at creating systems that maximize the utilization of resources and human capital, foster collaboration, and facilitate constructive change. By creating a common vision and articulating shared values, effective Principals lead and manage their schools in a manner that supports schools ability to promote equity and to continually improve their positive impact on students and families.
