New joint research from CASTL & EdPolicyWorks at DCPS highlighted in an article on teacher evaluation.

Luckily, DCPS plans to find out just how well its new initiative is playing out in schools. The district will assess LEAP's outcomes using a variety of measures, including educator surveys and classroom observation scores. DCPS is holding itself accountable as it tries to improve teacher development. Given most districts’ failure to assess the quality and impact of teacher PD, this is an accomplishment worth touting in and of itself.
