Roster verification set-up period begins next week
Principals and designated district administrators will receive an email on Monday, April 3, announcing that the school set-up period for value-added roster verification is underway through April 18. With the link in that message, which came from the district’s roster verification service provider, principals and their support teams may gain access to verify staff lists and assignments in preparation for the teacher roster verification period, which runs April 19 to May 9.
Teachers who will have value-added data from this year’s tests will then set up attribution for the students they taught, how long they taught them and the percentage of instruction they provided each student. Principals will have until May 25 to approve rosters.
Ultimately, the department will use the information collected this spring to prepare value-added reports that teachers will receive in fall 2017. Through the reports, teachers will gain diagnostic information about student performance this school year — and will learn more about the results of their instructional strategies. These reports also will be used to fulfill the growth requirement for each affected teacher’s evaluation in the spring of 2018.
To assist with roster verification, see resources on the department’s roster verification webpage. You may direct any questions to the roster verification state support team at (800) 780-1201 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or use the MCOECN’s Roster Verification support page to submit a help desk ticket.
