Value-Added Roster Verification

Many Ohio teachers receive a Value-Added report each fall that provides important data from the previous school year that schools use in educator evaluations and in instructional decision making. Superintendents, principals and teachers get ready in the spring for the next school year’s Value-Added reports through the important process known as roster verification.

Teachers can review and refine their class rosters during roster verification to ensure that their classroom time is linked to the correct students, for the correct subjects and the proper amount of time. The system allows for complex situations, such as when multiple teachers must claim instructional time for an individual student.

Enlist administrators in leadership roles

  • Principals are instrumental – They will serve as the key lead for their buildings and assist teachers in accurately depicting their instructional time and relationships.
     
  • Designate a lead district administrator – This person should be given access to all teachers’ rosters within the district and be able to help superintendents monitor districtwide completion.

Encourage training among building leaders and teachers

Teachers as well as new and returning principals can select an application training session tailored to their needs. Select a date from the complete schedule and register in STARS by accessing your SAFE account.
