Good morning,

I hope all of you are doing well. I wanted to remind you about the required
65% verification process for Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) and
Leader Keys Effectiveness System (LKES) and to let you know that the date has
been extended from January 18, 2016 to February 8, 2016. The 65% application
is currently open, and now will close at the end of the day on February 8,
2016. As a reminder, both the school leaders and district leader/designee must
complete this process. Please refer to the email below that I sent you on
November 2, 2015 for specifics regarding the 65% application. The FAQ document
is attached for your convenience as well.

For questions regarding this tool, please contact Keisla Tisdel
(ktisdel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','ktisdel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx');>)
or Carrie Matthews
(cmatthews@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','cmatthews@xxxxxxxxxxxxx');>)
at the GaDOE.

Thank you for your continued support of the TKES and LKES processes.

MEMORANDUM


TO: Superintendents

FROM: Avis King
Deputy Superintendent
Office of School Improvement

DATE: November 2, 2015

SUBJECT: 65% Verification Tool


The purpose of this email is to give you information regarding the required 65%
verification process for Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) and Leader
Keys Effectiveness System (LKES).

As you may be aware, the Teacher and Leader Effectiveness Division of the
Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has developed a tool that will
calculate whether a student, teacher, or leader meets the 65% requirement as
part of the Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) and Leader Keys
Effectiveness System (LKES). The data collected via the tool will be used to
determine eligibility for the TEM and LEM.

The application is located within the GaDOE portal, under the tab “TKES_LKES
65Percent,” and will open on Monday, November 2, 2015, and close on Monday,
January 18, 2016.

To assist you with completing this verification process, a 65% Application FAQ
document has been attached to this email to answer many of your questions. You
can also review the application’s user guide for further assistance. The user
guide is located on the 65% application’s home page under the “Help” link at
the top right of the application home page. The user guide outlines the
processes and provides instructions on the application’s uses.

There are two levels of sign-off for this tool, first by the principal and then
by the superintendent or superintendent’s designee. As noted in the user
guide, the principal will have the ability to do the following within the
application:

• view their school’s data

• certify the data for accuracy

• search for individual teachers, courses, or students in their school

• make modifications on teacher and student data from “Meets 65%” to
“Does Not Meet 65%” or vice versa

• provide comments on the reason for changes
The superintendent or designee will have the ability to do the following within
the application:

• view their district’s data

• certify (or un-certify, if applicable) each school’s data

• search for teachers and students within their district

• make modifications on teacher, leader, and student data from “Meets
65%” to “Does Not Meet 65%” or vice versa

• provide comments on the reason for changes
As a reminder, the data used in the tool has already been certified through
multiple data collections processes. Also, after attempting to use standard
calendars, it was determined that the application will display teacher and
student results based on the Julian calendar. Changing the programming logic
would cause major problems within the application.

For questions regarding this tool, please contact Keisla Tisdel
(ktisdel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','ktisdel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx');>)
or Carrie Matthews
(cmatthews@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','cmatthews@xxxxxxxxxxxxx');>)
at the GaDOE.

Thank you for your continued support of the TKES and LKES processes.
