Digital ToolBOX

We recognize technology as a tool…a powerful one!  Questions surrounding technology in education have changed. No longer can we ask…how do we learn technology? Instead we need to focus on: 

how do we learn WITH technology? and, 

how can technology TRANSFORM teaching & learning?

Teacher Supervision

The Perkiomen Valley School District’s Instructional Supervision Plan follows the framework of PDE’s Educator Effectiveness System. This structural framework has been created providing options to staff for yearly supervision modes.

All new staff to the district must participate in the Induction Program and complete the Beginning Teacher Program of Supervision (“Level I Observation”). Level II Certified Professional Staff may participate in the “Level II Observation” Mode of Supervision or “Level II Action Research” Mode. There are also programs for Teacher Assistance as identified by administration. All modes of supervision follow the Danielson Framework for Teaching.

There are several documents included on this site. Many documents are references for staff and assist in explaining the Teacher Effectiveness model and associated yearly evaluation form. Other documents are templates to be used for lesson planning, observation, and Specific Learning Objectives (SLO).
