In June 2011, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education adopted new regulations for the evaluation of Massachusetts educators.
The Collaborative for Educational Services (CES) is a state-approved training provider.
We support districts through the process of implementing the state's new Model System for evaluating educators and administrators, delivering to school- and district-level leadership teams DESE-designed training modules, with content tailored to address district needs, priorities, and constraints. With decades of experience providing professional development, coaching, and consultation on program implementation, curriculum mapping, and data analysis, CES understands the challenges educators and administrators face and we offer expertise in supporting district efforts to meet those challenges. We believe the Educator Evaluation System (EES) can be a powerful lever for increased conversation and collaboration that can positively impact teacher effectiveness and student success.
Training for teachers and teacher leaders, administrators, evaluators, school committee members, and anyone involved in school or district implementation of the Massachusetts Model System for Educator Evaluation.
