                            RIG I (Continuing RIGs) Assurances – Attachment A

To be eligible to participate in the TPEP ESD Regional Implementation Consortia Grant Program,
involvement in the following activities will be expected of each district:

These activities include:

    •    Regional consortia rater agreement training on selected teacher instructional framework(s).
    •    Identification of and/or development of appropriate multiple measures of student growth.
    •    Participation in professional development for principals and classroom teachers regarding the
         content of the new evaluation systems and eVAL management tool.
    •    Participation in evaluator training.
    •    Participation in activities to evaluate the effectiveness of the new systems and support
    •    Collaboration with other ESD implementation consortia, TPEP pilot districts, OSPI, WEA, AWSP,
         WASA, WSPTA, and WSSDA during the implementation process.

The following assurances are based on the lessons learned from the first year of the TPEP pilot sites:

    1. Local associations representing classroom teachers and principals agree to collaborate with the
       district and to participate in the full range of development and implementation activities
       regarding ESSB 5895 including working with OSPI’s contractor, American Institute of Research
       (AIR), to assess implementation challenges and successes.
    2. Use and calibration of instructional frameworks: Each consortium will engage in professional
       development designed to maximize rater agreement. Each of the three approved instructional
       frameworks can be found on our OSPI TPEP website: http://tpep-wa.org/.

                                          Application Questions

Please answer the following questions that will help us identify the Teacher and Principal Evaluation
Regional Implementation Grant (RIG) I Consortia sites and include your responses in your iGrants
application. Limit your responses to two pages.

    1. Relationships with principal/teacher associations: How would you characterize the district’s
       current working relationship with the principal and teacher associations?

    2. Communication: How will your district communicate with both pilot and non-pilot participants
       regarding the new evaluation implementation? How will you monitor the communication to
       ensure a consistent feedback loop and broad involvement in the Regional Implementation
       Consortia Grant process?
            Parent and community feedback: What are your current methods for obtaining
               feedback from parents and school communities?

    3. In-district collaboration: How will your district develop a collaborative process in constructing
       the rater agreement requirement in new evaluation systems? Who in your district will be
       involved in this process? How will you get buy-in for the new evaluation systems?

               ESD collaboration: Describe collaboration efforts your district has engaged in with your
                regional ESD. Explain how your district will continue to work in collaboration with other
                local districts through the ESD to ensure intentional development and implementation.

    4. Consortia participation: Why does your district want to continue with the TPEP ESD regional
       consortia? What factors will your district bring to a collaborative consortium process?
