Teacher & Principal Evaluation – Camas School District

There are many reasons why teacher and principal evaluation has been a focus at the state and national levels.  Here in Camas the reason is simply that we want to get better at teaching and learning every day.  Teaching is a challenging profession. Taking 30 to 150 students from all different backgrounds, at all different levels and helping them move forward every day requires tremendous skill, patience, and preparation.  The new evaluation system will provide greater opportunities to collaborate and grow in the profession.  Public education is a cornerstone of success for individuals, communities, and our country.  We embrace the responsibility and are committed to meeting the criteria of the new evaluation system, knowing that our growth positively impacts student growth.
