 Student Growth
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, appraisal systems in Texas, whether the state-recommended system or a locally developed system, will need to include a measure of student growth at the individual teacher level. Districts have four options for measuring student growth:  1) student learning objectives (SLOs); 2) portfolios; 3) district-level pre- and post-tests; and 4) value-add measures (VAM) for teachers in state-tested subjects.
One day training on SLOs and portfolios will be provided by the ESCs.  Participants will include campus administrators and/or superintendents, lead teachers or department heads.
