How do you get highly effectives in Duval County? Give them to yourself apparently.
are NOT allowed to have "too many" very effective marks on their annual evaluations --- because that would indicated that they have nothing to improve upon. I guess Vitti feels he was exempt from this.
Then other teachers feel they are deliberately being low-balled in their evaluations for a variety of reasons, among others age, school grades having to match evaluations and principals playing favorites. Those evaluations can affect promotions, rehiring and future salary.
There were a couple comments on Jacksonville.com that might better illustrate my points. First from the Harbinger of Doom: Let's see, first time as a superintendent and already highly effective almost across the board. What a super fast learner with no room to improve! I guess he has learned everything there is to learn in Jax and needs to start looking for a more challenging job. What utter arrogance.
I wonder how he would rate himself on modesty.
Call it arrogance, confidence, hubris or ego, but I think he would have been better served to be more modest. There I rate him developing/needs improvement.
