Observation A data gathering process that includes notes and judgments made during one or more school or worksite visits(s) by the Evaluator and may include examination of artifacts of practice including student work. An observation shall occur in person. All observations will be done openly and with knowledge of the Educator. Classroom or worksite observations conducted pursuant to this article must result in written feedback to the Administrator. Normal supervisory responsibilities of evaluators will also cause them to drop in on activities in the school or worksite at various times as deemed necessary by the evaluator. Carrying out these supervisory responsibilities, when they do not result in targeted and constructive feedback to the Administrator, are not observations as defined in this Article. Upon request of the Administrator, the Administrator and evaluator shall discuss any visit that had not previously resulted in feedback.
Formal Observation The instructional employee and the principal/administrator shall review using the mid-year Reflection Questions in the evaluation manual – Student Achievement Outcomes and make adjustments as needed to increase the likelihood of a positive goal outcome.
Informal Observation Additional evaluation of employees may occur through informal observations by the Employer. It may not be necessary to reduce such evaluations to writing, and a verbal discussion between the Employer and the employee concerning the informal observations may suffice. If a written evaluation is deemed necessary, Procedures C and D as outlined above shall be followed.
Observations The Evaluator’s first observation of the Educator should take place by November 15. Observations required by the Educator Plan should be completed by May 15th. The Evaluator may conduct additional observations after this date. The Evaluator is not required nor expected to review all the indicators in a rubric during an observation.
Formal Observations 1. A minimum of two (2) formal observations shall be conducted to support the final summative evaluation. All formal observations shall last a minimum of thirty (30) consecutive minutes and will take place between September 15 and April 30. There will be a minimum of fifteen (15) workdays between the first two (2) formal observations.
Informal Observations 1. An informal observation is a documented observation that is not required to be pre-scheduled. Additional informal observations may be necessary to collect additional evidence.
Construction Observation If, as part of this Agreement, Engineer is providing construction observation services, Engineer shall visit the project at appropriate intervals during construction to become generally familiar with the progress and quality of the Contractor’s work and to determine if the work is preceding in general accordance with the Contract Documents. Engineer shall not at any time supervise, direct, control, or have authority over any contractor’s work, nor shall Engineer have authority over or be responsible for the means, methods, techniques, sequences, schedule, or procedures of construction selected or used by any contractor, or the safety precautions and programs incident thereto, for the security or safety at the site, nor for any failure of a contractor to comply with laws and regulations applicable to that contractor’s furnishing and performing of its work. Engineer shall not be responsible for the acts or omissions of any contractor. Engineer neither guarantees the performance of any contractor nor assumes responsibility for any contractor’s failure to furnish and perform the work in accordance with the construction contract documents. Engineer shall not be responsible for any decision made regarding the construction contract documents, or any application, interpretation, clarification, or modification of the construction contract documents, other than those made by the Engineer or its consultants. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, the Owner has not retained the Engineer to make detailed inspections or to provide exhaustive or continuous project review and observation services.
Pre-Observation Conference The unit member to be evaluated shall have the option as to whether or not to meet with the evaluation team in a pre-observation conference. If the conference is held, its purpose shall be to discuss the criteria and procedures of the evaluation, the time and conditions of the observation visitations, and the time of the post-observation conference. Regardless of whether at the election of the unit member being evaluated the pre-observation conference is or is not held, the time of the observation visitations and the time of the post-observation conference shall be set by mutual agreement of the unit member and the evaluators at their convenience.
Post-Observation Conference 1. The post-observation conference between the evaluator and teacher will be held no later than five (5) days after the formal observation.
Observation Services This plan covers services provided to you when you are in a hospital or other licensed health care facility solely for observation. Even though you may use a bed or stay overnight, observation services are not inpatient services. Observation services help the physician decide if you need to be admitted for care as an inpatient or if you can be discharged. These observation services may be provided in the emergency room or another area of the hospital or licensed healthcare facility. See the Summary of Medical Benefits for the amount you pay.
