Educator Effectiveness Liaisons
One-time state funds of $30,000 per district/BOCES are available with the opportunity for districts to come together and apply for up to $90,000. Funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis for all qualifying applicants, with preference given to those applications that demonstrate the greatest impact the liaison will have on principals and other evaluators in the field. The funds will support an individual, identified by selected districts, to receive training and serve as an Educator Effectiveness Liaison. The Liaison will work with principals or other school leaders to build their evaluation, observation and feedback skills. The Liaison will also collaborate with CDE staff and a cohort of Educator Effectiveness Liaisons from other districts/BOCES to increase his/her skills and build local capacity while implementing quality educator evaluation and support systems.
