LEAP gives teachers and leaders the opportunity to reflect on practice and to make shifts in instruction and support based on a variety of data. The system is designed to look holistically at multiple factors contributing to a teacher's effectiveness.
School leaders and/or peers observe a teacher’s classroom practice, collect evidence, align the evidence to the Framework for Effective Teaching, arrive at an indicator score to help capture the level of performance, and identify strengths and opportunities for growth. In 2022-23, observation will be tied to the LEAP Learning Cycles (click on "Observation" to read more).
The graphics below represent how the multiple measures of LEAP come together to define and support effective teaching.
