[r24] Rep. Braun congratulates Zionsville Community Schools
Start Date: 2/11/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
Entry Description
STATEHOUSE – State Rep. Steve Braun (R-Zionsville) congratulates the Zionsville Community School system, which has been awarded a grant from the State of Indiana for their teacher evaluation model. 

 “The Zionsville Community School system was selected out of 124 total applicants,” said Rep. Braun. “The process of selecting which schools were awarded the grant was arduous and multifaceted to ensure the best teachers were recognized.
This is a true testament to the high caliber of our faculty, staff and students in the Zionsville School Corporation, and they should be very proud of themselves for this achievement.” 

 Zionsville Community Schools have been awarded $787,000 of the Indiana Excellence in Performance for Teachers grant. The grant recognizes teachers who have shown outstanding work in the classroom based on an evaluation model. School corporations across Indiana were selected to receive varying proportions of the $10 million grant.  

 The model used to evaluate the school system is called RISE. The model, developed by the Indiana Teacher Evaluation Cabinet, was used over the course of a year. RISE uses multiple sources of information to paint a fair, accurate, and comprehensive representation of a teacher’s performance. 

 The Zionsville Community School system is one of 40 school corporations in Indiana chosen for their use of the RISE model which uses classroom observations and conferences to provide a clear picture of what teachers do in their classrooms and schools.

 “Improving education standards and strengthening Indiana’s education system is a top priority  for the 2013 legislative session,” said Rep. Braun. “I’m encouraged to see our educators being rewarded for their efforts as they inspire the future leaders of Indiana.”
