Building professional growth...

  • Gwinnett Effectiveness Initiative

    teacher and mentor reviewing documents and smiling for the camera Gwinnett County Public Schools partnered with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to develop a new evaluation system for teachers and leaders. In Gwinnett, we are calling it the Gwinnett Teacher and Leader Effectiveness System. Why the focus on “effectiveness”? Because the goal is to implement a system that is more than an evaluation tool… It also should increase the effectiveness of our employees by identifying areas of strength and growth and individualizing professional development based on specific needs.

Effectiveness and Leadership...

  • Gwinnett Leader Effectiveness System (GLES)

    Though research indicates the most important factor in a student’s education is first and foremost, the teacher, today’s school leader is expected to lead the school with this ultimate goal of increasing student learning while helping staff to grow professionally. The goal of Georgia’s Leader Keys Effectiveness System is to provide leaders with meaningful feedback and to support the continuous growth and development of each leader by monitoring, analyzing, and applying pertinent data from multiple sources toward attainment of established performance goals.
