Role Eligibility: Applicants may qualify for multiple roles with a single application. The review team will consider all applicant materials and determine eligibility. A candidate who is deemed eligible for ERT3 is also eligible for ERT1 and ERT2. A candidate eligible for MCL1 is also eligible for all ERT levels. School prinicpals and HR Leadership will determine what position levels are available based on funding, allotments, and approved school plan for ATR. A candidate may accept a lower position than overall eligibility (i.e. may accept an ERT2 position even though eligible for up to ERT3). Candidates will only be eligible for roles within their respective licensure areas.

 

Responsibilities: ERTs must directly instruct and claim responsibility (PowerSchool and EVAAS) for the designated percent increase from the teacher’s previous year total student caseload. This is legislative defination that must be met in order to recieve stipend reimbursement from the state. In order to be eligible for state reimbursement, the ERT must be on a coaching caseload of a MCL in the same building.

MCLs are responsible for carrying a coaching caseload of the designated number of teachers by level. The caseload may be made up of a grade-level or band, PLC, or combination of teachers with support needs within the MCLs eligibility/licensure area. MCLs must share responsibility for the performance of the students of all teachers on the coaching caseload (including designated EVAAS percentage). MCLs must work in the classroom providing direct instruction for 30% of the instructional day in order to be eligible for state reimbursement.

 

EVAAS: EVAAS performance is an automatic qualifier and could remove the need for the candidate to submit a data portfolio. EVAAS submissions must be internally confirmed. Relevant EVAAS data could be from 2016-17 SY to present. SYs 16-17, 17-18, 18-19, 21-22, 22-23. Candidates will qualify for roles within the grade band and content area of EVAAS submissions. For example, if a candidate submits EVAAS history for 4th grade reading, the candidate will be eligible to accept positions supporting K-5 Reading/ELA. Candidates cannot qualify for higher level roles with multiple content area submissions.

 

Data Portfolio: Data Portfolio should include a narrative explanation, 4 data sources, and baseline data to which you are comparing your students and shows that you achieved one or more percentile points above the school and/or district achievement data on any of the following subjects: math, science, ELA. Data Portfolio options include: Amplify K-3 Literacy Assessment, iREADY Grades 1-5 Diagnostic Assessment of Reading or Math, District Benchmarks, student surveys about classroom or teacher effectiveness such as Panorama, past/current coaching caseload performance, and/or looping proficiency increases. Data Portfolio samples coming soon!
