Delaware DOE Contract RFP For DPAS II Evaluation…What Will They Do To Educators Next? @KilroysDelaware @ed_in_de @RCEAPrez @Apl_Jax @nannyfat @ecpaige @Roof_O @DelawareBats #netde #eduDE #edchat #Delaware

The Delaware Department of Education put out a bid contract for a vendor to come in and evaluate the DPAS II system.  This measures the effectiveness of teachers in Delaware.  The DOE and Secretary of Education Mark Murphy were not happy when 99% of educators in Delaware were rated “effective” or “highly effective”.  I do believe this vendor will look to change that.  Very interesting parts of this RFP show ahead of time this vendor is only to look at districts that have been known to be innovative in implementing certain practices.  The deadline had been January 6th, but has been extended until January 20th as per the addendum on the contract bid website: http://www.bids.delaware.gov/bids_detail.asp?i=2807&DOT=N

Delaware educators: read and beware!

The document in the article below this one, about Penny Schwinn’s presentation to the Delaware Department of Education went over many topics, including a student growth model.  It talked about an RFP, which is an overview of what prospective vendors can look at to determine if they want to bid on the project.  I have located the RFP on the state contract page.  It is interesting with the wording for teacher evaluations….
