Maine Approves the Marzano Teacher and School Leader Evaluation Models

Maine educators, steering committees, and School Administrative Units are working together to meet the requirements of the proposed Performance Evaluation and Professional Growth Systems by the state. The primary goal of implementing contemporary educator evaluation systems is to raise student achievement by improving educator effectiveness.

The Maine Department of Education has approved the required elements of a professional practice model that are included in both the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model and Marzano School Leader Evaluation Model. While these models can be implemented independently, they were designed to be used in close conjunction and, as such, are a tightly-aligned pair of evaluation models. Both models rely on a common language of instruction, building collaboration among teachers, leaders, and central office administrators to maximize an education system’s impact on raising student achievement.

The Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model

Aligned to The Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC), the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model is robust and thorough enough to help educators identify the “thin slices” of teaching behaviors that help them focus on specific areas for improvement. Furthermore, the model’s observation protocol facilitates administrators’ observations for the implementation of the updated Maine Learning Results (state standards).

Register for a webinar to watch an overview of the Marzano model, along with a full demonstration of iObservation. Stacy Penna is happy to answer your questions regarding the model and our implementation services, so feel free to contact her any time.

The Marzano School Leader Evaluation Model

Aligned to the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards, the Marzano School Leader Evaluation Model provides school leaders and administrators with strategies and tools to empower their teachers, so leaders and teachers can focus together on the ultimate objective: improving student learning.

Although this school leader evaluation model supports any InTASC-aligned teacher evaluation model, its power is realized most fully when used in conjunction with the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model.
