Collaboration, Coaching, and Feedback
In 2012 The Weston Public Schools implemented a new supervision model after two years of collaborative committee work with a team of faculty and administration. What emerged was a dynamic mo providing ongoing feedback to teachers on the full range of their professional work in Weston.
The vision for the model was guided by shared values about essential goals of strong coaching toward excellence:
The Weston Supervision Model is now heading into its fourth year of implementation during this 2015-2016 school year. Teachers receive frequent and continual feedback and share in discussion with supervisors about their classrooms, student performance data, and targeted personal goals for areas of interest and new learning.
The model is grounded in frequent classroom visits across the span of the year with short summaries of immediate feedback to guide teacher work while it is relevant and current. Teaching is a complex and subtle craft, so receiving feedback in smaller shorter amounts throughout the year helps to support responsive teaching.
