“Value added” is a measure of a teacher’s contributions to students’ academic growth. The value-added model is designed to isolate a teacher’s value added from other factors that might affect a student’s scores but that are outside the teacher’s control. The Student Academic Growth (SAG) will comprise 35 percent of the total teacher/leader evaluation score.
Roster Verification (RV) is a teacher/student linkage process that securely and effectively collects essential data for teacher-level measures of effectiveness to ensure reliability and accuracy in classroom-level growth reports. School support teams and principals work together to ensure the most reliable data is captured and used to determine the impact of instructional practices on student progress.
