An observation target makes clear the number of observations a particular teacher should have over the course of an academic year. If you're in NYC, this will be Option 1, 2, or 3 as agreed at the Initial Planning Conference. If you're outside NYC, you might set targets for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly observations of staff. However your school manages observation targets, our new Insight allows you to do the following:
Review teacher observation targets.
Track how many observations have, and have not, been conducted for each teacher.
View the status and date of all observations in the cycle.
To check out this new Insight, click on the School tab on the left-hand menu, then select the green Insights icon (it’s a lightbulb!).
Choose the last option: “Observation Target Progress.”
