DiLE Rubric Walkthroughs
As you may remember, our district designed the DiLE Rubric last year to asses the use of technology in classrooms. Please take some time to review this rubric and let a member of the Principal Team know if you have any questions. To date, everyone, except for three of you, has had a walkthrough with the Danielson Framework. Starting on December 1 and through the end of the second marking period, our walkthrough focus will be placed on the DiLE Rubric.
You can review the DiLE Rubric by going to this website: https://docs.google.com/a/pgsd.org/forms/d/11x0t0XHE386F1Bt8Odm8Dr2Hc77zpXhIxUIhsg4z7G0/viewform
Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Principal Team if you have any questions.
