Don’t miss the opportunity to attend the Human Capital Symposium

Texas schools will soon be facing decisions about how to make the state’s new model teacher evaluation or similar models work effectively for them and how to include student growth measures.
 
The Human Capital Symposium, sponsored by Texas Center for Educator Effectiveness (TxCEE—housed at ESC 18), TASB HR Services, and TASPA, will feature panel discussions with six districts that are experienced with implementing new models for teacher evaluation, compensation, and professional development. It takes place Oct. 27 and 28, 2015, at the San Marcos Embassy Suites.
 
While each district model is somewhat unique, all human capital systems have commonalities, such as collaborative coaching, more robust observation methods, training appraisers more effectively, incorporating objective student growth measures, rewarding effective teaching, engaging stakeholders, and managing data.
 
Participating districts will be large and small including Austin, Dallas, Houston, Lytle, Pharr-San Juan-Alamo, and Anderson-Shiro ISDs.
 
Panel discussion topics will include:
  • New evaluation models for teachers and principal
  • Student growth measures
  • Making a new system work in your district
  • Building capacity and sustainability
  • Implementing an effective professional development system
  • Rewarding talent through compensation
  • Building successful school leaders
  • Getting ready to launch a new human capital management system
  • Getting your educators to buy in
