TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS

  • Since the spring of 2015, Neumann Goretti has partnered with TNTP, a national non-profit founded by teachers nearly twenty years ago to support its school transformation efforts.
  • Through this partnership, TNTP visits every Neumann-Goretti faculty member’s classroom in the fall and spring, rating the lesson they observe on a rigorous rubric for instructional quality.

> The number of teachers receiving one of the top 2 ratings (out of 5) on the student engagement section of the rubric has tripled since the spring of 2015.
> The number of teachers receiving one of the top 3 ratings (out of 5 possible ratings) on the rigorous academic content section of the rubric has doubled since the spring of 2015.
