Teacher evaluation ensures the quality and effectiveness of instruction, promotes continuous improvement and enhances the overall learning experience for adult learners.
The Connecticut State Department of Education, Academic Office - Adult Education expects that all Adult Education teachers should be evaluated annually and agency Directors are doing regular “walk-throughs”.
Adult Education Educator Evaluation
All programs must have at least one staff member trained in the Adult Education Evaluation and Support Plan.
Adult education programs may use their district's approved evaluation plan (based on SEED), or the Adult Educator Evaluation and Support Plan to evaluate educators. A 'hybrid' plan may be developed that takes components from both the Adult Education Plan and the district plan under the following circumstances in which the evaluation plan is:
Approved by the district’s Professional Development and Evaluation Committee;
Approved by the district’s Board of Education; and
Is submitted in both paper and electronic versions to the Adult Education Bureau of the CSDE with documentation and signatures attesting to the district’s approval
