Joann Taylor - Assistant Director, Strategic Compensation
AISD REACH constantly works to provide a system of supports and rewards, and one additional way to support teacher growth is through peer observation. As we were developing the pilot teacher appraisal system, many teachers expressed the desire to receive constructive and objective feedback from their peers to help improve their practice. In order to meet this need as well as the TIF grant requirement of two observations, REACH is piloting a peer observation system.
Each observation will be scored based on the instructional practice and classroom climate rubrics. Each observation has the possibility for a total score of 40. Both rubric totals will be combined for a final score.
If teachers receive a cut score of 60 and do not receive any ones on a rubric competency strand for either observation, then he/she will receive a $500 stipend.
Please contact your campus peer observer or Joann Taylor, Assistant Director for Strategic Compensation, at 414-9592.
