DPAS II--

  This process is a true partnership of
        ALL EDUCATORS in the
           state of Delaware—
specialists, teachers and administrators.
       Our focus is always on the

    IMPROVEMENT
         of
STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT.

                                            6
DPAS II Process


• After two years as a pilot in two
  school districts, DPAS II is being
  implemented in six school districts
  and three charter schools—2007-2008.

• The pilot experiences were evaluated
  by Progress Education Corporation.




                                     7
DPAS II Process
• The Department of Education, working in concert with
  the pilot districts, DSEA, and DASA, listened carefully
  to the feedback.

• Committed to continuously improve DPAS II, changes
  were made after Year 1 of the pilot. Additional
  changes were made following Year 2 of the pilot.

• Beginning in the Fall of 2008, DPAS II will be
  implemented in ALL districts and charter schools in
  the state of Delaware.

• DOE will continue to monitor and evaluate DPAS II,
  and will continue to revise DPAS II in response to
  feedback.


                                                       8
DPAS II Process


• DPAS II for teachers, specialists, and
  administrators has been designed to reflect
  the practice of each group of educators.

• Each system is based on a framework of
  practice and aligns with DE standards.

• Although the components differ slightly,
  there is considerable alignment between and
  among the three systems.
