Update on the FWSU Teacher Evaluation Committee

Back in early September the new FWSU Evaluation Committee was formed. The basis for the formation of the group was in response to the FWSU Board of Directors asking for a comprehensive review of our teacher evaluation model. They charged the administration to make adjustments or revisions where necessary with a focus on measuring student growth and student outcomes.


The committee was formed and a team of educators and administrators from all schools in FWSU began its task.  The committee is comprised of the following individuals – Bev Briggs (FES), Janet E. Cerro (FES), Karen Garrett (GEMS), Phil Gulizio (GEMS), Melinda Carpenter (BFA), Tracey Godin (FES), Tom Walsh (BFA), Mary Lynn Riggs (FWSU), Rachelle LeVau (BFA/FWSU Board) and Ned Kirsch (FWSU).

Over the past 5 months, the committee has met consistently and is drafting a document to present to the FWSU Board this spring. The new evaluation system will be ready for implementation for the 2013/2014 school year.


Much has been written recently regarding teacher effectiveness and evaluation. Throughout their work, the committee has stayed as up-to-date as possible on the current research. The committee has studied the work of Robert Marzano, Charlotte Danielson, Kim Marshall, and many other noted educational researchers. Here are a few of the resources that have shaped the process and informed the committee’s decisions along the way:

The next meeting is scheduled for early February. If you have any questions about this important work, please feel free to ask any member of the committee.
