In this project, the Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) is collaborating with the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) to collect stakeholder feedback for refining the state’s English learner (EL) professional development (PD) plan. The SECC is supporting the Title III and EL staff with resources and tools designed to measure the effectiveness of PD it provides to local education agencies (LEAs).
The SECC will provide content expertise and evidence-based resources for guiding the development of a statewide model for teacher and leader evaluation, including defining teacher and leader effectiveness, determining metrics of effectiveness, and aligning educator evaluation outcomes with professional learning.
- Increased capacity to measure effectiveness of EL support systems for schools and districts
- Improved organizational structures and processes
