CAST Final Overall Evaluations & Inquiry for Instructional Personnel

CAST Final Overall Evaluations & Inquiry
September 9, 2019

The 2018-2019 Final Overall Evaluations are now available in the PERFORM Evaluation Portal. If you are unable to see your results please see your administrator.

You will receive an email requesting your review and electronic signature once your administrator has completed the 18-19 final summative evaluation form with student growth. Your final summative evaluation score is a combination of the Administrator Observation Score (90 points), Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP) Score (10 points), and the Student Growth Score (100 points). As a reminder, the maximum summative evaluation score is 200 points.

You must: (1) electronically sign your final summative evaluation in PERFORM and (2) meet with your current supervising administrator to hold a final summative evaluation conference to discuss your results and physically sign a hard copy of your final summative evaluation. Teachers and administrator signatures are needed.

The Growth Score Inquiry process has been established for teachers who have a concern regarding their data. Inquiries regarding the accuracy of student growth data that may adversely impact a teacher’s summative evaluation results will be received electronically. The electronic CAST Growth Score Inquiry Form can be completed at the following link: 2018-19 CAST Student Growth Inquiry Survey. Once you have submitted an inquiry, a pop-up screen will appear indicating that your inquiry was received. Print out this screen for your records.
