Pennsylvania Administrator Theme Issue

   The May 2015 issue of the Pennsylvania Administrator focuses on the theme, "Teacher Effectiveness: Celebrations and Challenges."  

   The passage of Act 82 in 2012 has given Pennsylvania educators new guidelines for assessing the effectiveness of both school teachers and administrators. With any new implementation, there comes trials and tribulations (or celebrations and challenges). The May issue of the Pennsylvania Administrator will focus on stories from the field as districts implement the new effectiveness processes. In particular, we are interested in articles from the field that address some of the following:

  • How the district has aligned the Act 82 guidelines with a differentiated supervision plan.

  • How the district is dealing with the teacher specific component.

  • How the district has handled the student learning objective (SLO) component with both the teacher and principal.

  • Any issues that have surfaced with the Act 82 forms.

  • Effective tools school leaders are using with the processes.

   Articles should be no longer than 1,500 words. Articles must be submitted via e-mail as a Microsoft Word document. A biographical sketch and a high resolution (300 dpi is preferred), color photograph of the author(s) (saved as a JPEG or a TIFF file) must accompany all articles. E-mail articles to sherit@paessp.org. The deadline to submit an article is March 6, 2015.
