Instructional Leadership in Action

New training helps districts move to version 3 of the 5D+™ Rubric

by Patty Maxfield on Apr 26, 2017

5d-rubric-v3-announcement.jpgBeginning with the 2017 school year, the State of Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) requires that all Washington districts currently using the 5D+ Rubric transition to version 3 of the rubric: the 5D+ Rubric for Instructional Growth and Teacher Evaluation.

The Center for Educational Leadership's (CEL) 5D+ Rubric Transition Training helps principals, central office leaders and teachers recalibrate their understanding of the teaching and learning practices described by each indicator, transitioning from version 2 to version 3 of the 5D+ Rubric.

During the course of one day, educators will learn how to shift thinking and practice from 37 to 30 indicators and how to apply strengths-based and inquiry stances to observation of teaching practice.

While the training is not required by Washington state, it is helpful to revisit and refine leadership practice around a growth-oriented teacher evaluation process.
