Workshops Addressing Ethics & Important Topics for School Social Workers


Is your state or district requiring new evaluation rubrics? Are you tired of being evaluated using the “Teacher Evaluation Form”? During the Pre-Conference, a panel of School Social Workers from 3 states who have already tackled “SSW Evaluation Rubrics in the New Era of Mandated Accountability " will share what their states/districts have developed. On Saturday, Dr. Chris Sabatino, Dr. Michelle Alvarez, Dr. David Dupper, Dr. Jim Raines and others will also make a presentation on a school social work evaluation rubric they have been working on based on the Danielson Model.
