Pre Kindergarten TA Evaluation Policy
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany works alongside the City School District of Albany to deliver an accessible Pre Kindergarten program in multiple schools. The teachers and the teaching assistants are hired and managed by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany. One of our new 2017 focus areas at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany is to maintain the high quality work. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to collaborate with the Director of the Director of the Pre Kindergarten program Ms. Faith Silver to develop an annual performance review process for all staff members. The Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) development began with the ones who are closest to the students, our Teaching Assistants, whereby the Teachers will collect data in three different areas on a quarterly basis. This will allow the administration to offer professional development opportunities as needed and build an on-going dialogue in the classroom.
