Plattsburgh on cutting edge of teacher evaluations

— “We did a partnership with Saranac Central School for the principals’ part,” Short said.

“With this project being collaborative in nature, it will be a much better product,” said Saranac Central School Superintendent Kenneth Cringle. “It concentrates on the performance of our building administrators, measuring their effectiveness and performance in a much more formal process.

“Hopefully we will have a draft of this after the new year and start to pilot it early spring.”

Plattsburgh’s teacher evaluation process is available for other districts to examine.

Essentially, Short said, it boils down to a deeper look at the professional practice of teaching and educators being able to demonstrate student growth.

“No one can argue, that is a great concept,” Short said.
