April 24, 2018 ILT Agenda

Please review the attached C&I ILT Agenda for Tuesday, April 24.


In preparation for CISD’s Night of the Stars event and our Community Partnership Dashboards that will be publicly posted on the CISD website, we are requesting updated partnership information. We want to ensure we have accurate information and do not forget to recognize any of our generous community partners. Please assist us by reviewing our current Community Partnership Dashboard and providing any changes or additions to Chris Waltmire @ Christine.waltmire@crowley.k12.tx.us by May 3rd. You may use this Partnership Inventory Form and attach it to an email or simply provide your information in the body of an email.


The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will be collecting information from surveys that campus principals across the state including Crowley ISD Principals that are required to complete regarding the performance of first-year teachers and the effectiveness of educator preparation programs in preparing first-year teachers to succeed in the classroom. Principals will complete a principal survey for each first-year teacher on their campus using the same procedures from previous years. The Principal Survey is only for first- year teachers who went through a Texas Educator Preparation program and certified as a teacher (standard certificate OR an intern on a Probationary certificate) and taught for a minimum of five (5) months. The survey collection has begun and must be completed no later than Friday, June 15, 2018.

If you do not have a TEAL account, you will need to create one in an effort to access the Principal Survey. The surveys are found in your TEA educator profile ECOS blue screen and pre-populated with teachers attached to your campus.

In addition to the current year principal survey, the TEA is piloting an updated principal survey that is in development for use in coming years. This updated principal survey has been approved by the SBEC to better reflect the teacher standards and teacher evaluation system currently in use across the state. Principals are being asked to contribute to this important survey development process by completing a pilot principal survey for their first-year teachers. Principals will receive emails with a specific link to a pilot survey for a first-year teacher on their campus upon completion of the current survey.

Participation in the pilot survey process is voluntary and principals are encouraged to make use of their appropriate designees to help with completing the pilot surveys. Pilot participants will have the opportunity to preview the survey and contribute valuable information that will help inform the development of the future principal survey. In recognition of their contribution to this pilot process, principals (or their designees) will earn five (5) Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits for each pilot survey that is submitted.
