State Model Evaluator Training (SMET) 2016-2017

“Credible, fair and professional evaluations of licensed personnel depend on high quality, effective training for evaluators that are consistent across the state. As required in state law, all performance evaluations must be conducted by an individual who has completed a training in evaluation skills that has been approved by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). As such, any person who conducts an evaluation of school licensed personnel must hold a principal or administrator license or complete a state approved evaluation training program.”

The San Juan BOCES is an approved training provider on the Colorado State Model Evaluation System. The San Juan BOCES SMET program is taught in four modules utilizing various delivery methods (online, in-person and self-guided practice). It is the intention of the San Juan BOCES to provide this training between November and February of a traditional school-year cycle. Participants can assume that all work will be completed by the end of February.
