Differentiated Supervision & Teacher Evaluation
CASD Differentiated Supervision & Teacher Evaluation
Catasauqua Area School District administration, elementary, middle, and high school teachers, and union leaders collaborated to create a differentiated supervision program that provides increased opportunities for professional learning without sacrificing quality assurance. In 2013-2014 we updated our differentiated supervisory options to align with the PDE Educator Effectiveness guidelines and regulations. Please click on the files/links at the bottom of this page as well as the differentiated supervision options that are linked on the left side of the webpage for more information.
