Where other solutions introduce additional complexity into performance evaluations, Perform’s intuitive, user-friendly features actually reduce the burden of the traditionally paper-heavy process.
“Even my secretary, who does not have an HR background and had never done anything with HR or HRIS before, has been able to pick up everything fairly quickly,” Jeremy said. “If I can get her in the system and understanding it, I have no doubt that I’m going to be able to do the same thing with the rest of my staff as I roll it out with them. That gives me peace of mind — knowing that I made a good decision.”
Perform also empowers schools and districts to stay compliant with state and federal regulations, which was a major concern for Fort Zumwalt School District in O’Fallen, Missouri.
“We picked up Perform when we moved to our new evaluation system: the Missouri State model,” said Jackie Floyd, Ed.D., assistant superintendent at the district. “We looked at some different solutions, but Perform was the clear choice.”
As one of the districts tasked with implementing the Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (TTESS) during the 2015-2016 school year, Prosper ISD’s leaders also needed a proven solution that could meet their state’s unique teacher evaluation criteria.
“The required student growth measures are going to integrate so much more easily, so we’ll not only be able to look at what the growth measure is, but how the students are growing. We can look at it and analyze it, connecting it to so many sets of TTESS measures,” Bernadette said. “But being able to customize the analytics and reporting is, for me — and for principals, I think — more important than anything.”
Leaders at Fort Zumwalt also appreciate the customization options.
“We needed to be able to do some tweaking, and Perform let us do that — which we really liked,” Jackie said. “It had the state model’s form already in there, and I was able to use those and change it up to build my own forms to fit our district’s specific needs.”
