NEW CESA Services to DPI-Model Schools

DPI-model schools can access no-cost and low-cost services to provide EE support to build your school culture; center your EE System work on learning; embed EE practices in your district goals and initiatives; develop your instructional leadership skills; or design a combination of topics to meet your local needs.  Check out the flyer for additional information. 

Evaluator Training, Certification, and Calibration

DPI-model evaluators of teachers should continue to fulfill initial certification or recertification requirements and calibration activity requirements by successfully completing DPI-provided materials and activities.

In August of 2023, we released a revised set of materials. These materials retain the training brevity and focus while responding to user feedback while also providing deeper dive, extension resources. Facilitation materials are also offered to support local, facilitated group training.

NEW Access for Evaluators of Teachers to an online Video Library

DPI has contracted with TeachForward to provide a library of videos of classroom instruction that can be utilized to support evaluator/observer training, certification, and calibration activities.
