[Case Study]

Roxbury Township Public Schools

Improving Roxbury educators’ view of professional development​.

The Roxbury Township Public Schools, a dynamic and thriving district, is preparing the children of today for tomorrow. Knowing that effective teachers are a critical factor in student success, they set a goal to increase student achievement through a district-wide initiative directed at supporting educator growth.

The district chose Frontline Professional Growth to help them on their journey to open up new professional growth opportunities.

  • Administrators now create customized forms and reports that make state reporting more accurate, quick and efficient.
  • Moving the teacher observation process from paper to online has increased its effectiveness by setting specific timelines for completion, saving weeks of passing paper back and forth.
  • By using evidence collected during observations, principals can provide organic and timely feedback to their teachers, who can then put feedback into practice immediately.

 

“Frontline has really helped us to streamline the feedback loop — the ability to communicate effectively using given timetables to provide essential feedback and sign off on it — all of those things that used to be a paper chase in the past.”

— Chuck Seipp, Assistant Superintendent
