DCTA and DPS have reached an agreement for how SLOs will be used to determine ProComp incentives in the ‘14-15 school year. Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) have replaced Student Growth Objectives (SGOs) beginning this school year. Because this is the first year that DPS teachers are learning to use SLOs to monitor their students’ growth, both DCTA and DPS were committed to looking at engagement, rather than outcomes, to award ProComp incentives to teachers (and other licensed professionals who will now set SLOs). DCTA and DPS have agreed to a 'participation rubric’ which school leaders will use to determine if a teacher’s engagement in the 2014-15 SLO process meets expectations for earning incentives formerly related to SGOs under the ProComp agreement. Closely tied to the new academic standards, SLOs are an improved process for DPS educators to set ambitious learning goals for students and to measure their progress toward mastery of the standards.
