Submit an Article for The Pennsylvania Administrator – Spring 2018 Theme Issue

   The Pennsylvania Principals Association is seeking articles for its Spring 2018 theme issue, Online Learning: Supervision of Instruction.”

   There is an accountability factor required to evaluate teacher performance in PA’s public schools on a semi-annual and/or annual basis (as defined in Act 82 of 2012). Many factors contribute to these overall ratings, but most importantly, in a brick and mortar school, classroom observation plays a critical role. With the growth of cyber schools, traditional classroom observations appear to be impossible, so how do we supervise our teachers for growth, and how do we collect the data to evaluate performance? This has been an area of concern as the cyber school concept has grown over recent years. We are seeking articles that share what has been developed thus far that addresses this challenge.

   Articles should focus on all or one of the following:

  • Supervision of cyber teachers
  • Effectiveness of student learning
  • Effectiveness of blended learning opportunities

   To submit an article for the theme issue, please send it to Sheri Thompson at sherit@paprincipals.org by March 2, 2018. Articles should be no longer than 1,500 words, and must be submitted as a Word document. A biographical sketch and a high resolution (300 dpi is preferred), color photograph of the author(s) (saved as a JPEG or a TIFF file) must accompany all articles.
