PERA Evaluation Training
The Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA) created law that identifies required training for Teacher and Principal Evaluators. There are TWO components that an individual must meet in order to be qualified to evaluate:
1. INITIAL EVALUATOR TRAINING
Important Information Regarding Growth Through Learning
The initial online Teacher Evaluator and Principal Evaluator training modules through Growth Through Learning ended December 31, 2018.
That online training has been replaced with a new face-to-face, two-day course that is offered as an Administrator Academy through North Cook ISC. See the schedule for this course under Professional Learning / Administrator Academies.
Requests for PERA Evaluator online training grant funds are no longer being processed.
Educators who started the Teacher Evaluation modules through Growth Through Learning were required to complete all modules prior to the end of December 2018. If the modules were not completed, you must attend the two-day Administrator Academy in order to be qualified to evaluate staff.
