Berkeley administrator attends professional evaluation session

October 11, 2009

MOOREFIELD, W.Va. - Autumne Frye, assistant principal of Berkeley Heights Elementary School in Berkeley County, W.Va., attended training in effective professional evaluation provided by Regional Education Service Agency VIII.

Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral and Pendleton Counties and West Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind administrators attended the session at Moorefield Middle School. Building principals reviewed the current policy in West Virginia and were given a chance to delve into the best ways to use the policy to support teacher quality in their schools.

Jane Lynch, RESA VIII executive director, discussed opportunities for county administrators to network with other principals, apply materials to scenarios and ask questions in order to better utilize the evaluation system. Lynch has 20 years of administrative experience in the state. She previously presented the training material in graduate-level courses.

Plans are being made to provide follow-up opportunities for RESA VIII administrators.

Frye said, "We had a good discussion on 'Why We Evaluate.' We should present the evaluation process as a positive. It's a great way for us to look at areas of need within our schools to improve instruction. After all, our common goal is to do what's best for the children."
