2011 Wisconsin Act 166 mandates all public school districts and 2R charter schools to use the WI EE System to evaluate teachers and principals.
Required educators are defined by the roles and duties that are performed, not job title.
This tool can be used to locally determine which staff members are mandated in accordance with WI Act 166 to be evaluated using the teacher or principal evaluation processes of the Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness System.
Evaluation of Pupil Services/Other Staff
DPI consultants, in conjunction with supporting Wisconsin organizations and practitioners, have created optional rubrics and evaluation systems for staff roles for whom the teacher evaluation rubric and process is not appropriate. These optional evaluation rubrics and processes are based on appropriate role-based national standards. The processes used to evaluate staff who are not specifically mandated by Act 166 is a local decision. More information:
- Social Workers
Evaluation guidance, WI created rubrics, and downloadable forms can be found at DPI Pupil Services Performance Evaluation Tools. Rubric, forms, and evaluation types are also included in DPI model Frontline Education platform configurations.
Library Media Specialists
Occupational Therapists/Physical Therapists
Evaluation guidance, WI created rubric, and downloadable forms can be found at DPI Special Education OT/PT Evaluation. Rubric, forms, and evaluation types are also included in DPI model Frontline Education platform configurations.
Optional Evaluations for Other Roles, Currently In Development
Speech Language Pathologists
A workgroup of Speech Language Pathologists from across the state worked throughout the 2018-19 school year to develop a WI created rubric aligned to national standards for that role, as well as outline evaluation processes and forms.
The WI SLP rubric and evaluation materials will be available for districts and 2R charters who wish to pilot the evaluation processes for the 2019-20 school year. During the pilot, the evaluation materials should not be used for high-stakes decision-making and pilot districts must agree to participate in surveys and other feedback loops throughout the process.
The pilot registration is closed.
In the 2018-19 school year, the developers of the WI Coaching Competency Practice Profile (CCPP) began to develop an evaluation rubric aligned to the CCPP and other employee standards. This evaluation development work will deepen in the 2019-20 school year.
The coach evaluation developers will release a minimal rubric and evaluation forms for districts and 2R charters to pilot for the 2019-20 school year. During the pilot, the evaluation materials should not be used for high-stakes decision-making and pilot districts must agree to participate in surveys and other feedback loops throughout the process. The feedback received from the pilot process will inform further development throughout the 2019-20 school year.
The pilot registration and materials will be available in June 2019.
