Educator Plan Implementation
Responsibility for plan implementation is divided between educators and evaluators. For the duration of their cycle, educators will pursue the attainment of the goals identified in the Educator Plan, and collect and submit evidence of their practice related to the Performance Standards (educators are only required to upload evidence of Standards III and IV).
Evaluators will provide with feedback for improvement, ensure timely access to planned supports, and collect evidence of educator performance and progress toward goals through multiple sources, including unannounced and announced observations.
Implementation of the Educator Plan begins as soon as goals are finalized, and continues until the end of the cycle.

The type of plan is determined by the Educator’s career stage, overall performance rating, and impact on student learning, growth, and achievement.1.
