School Districts Choose Halogen Software to Appraise Teacher Performance

Growing number of school districts are using Halogen performance management data to connect teaching practices with student achievement outcomes

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 9, 2012) - Halogen Software continues to see growth in the number of K-12 school districts selecting the company's talent management suite to support teacher evaluation and development. Over 70 educational institutions currently rely on Halogen to simplify evaluations, improve teacher development and reduce administrative overhead.

In a time where K-12 schools are under increasing pressure to comply with state requirements for teacher performance appraisals, Halogen is being recognized by school administrators for its flexible and simple-to-use solution. With Halogen, schools can gain real insight into performance gaps and development needs using a library of competencies and the rubric or evaluation framework of their choice. The solution is designed to enable K-12 schools to get up and running quickly and start transforming this burdensome administrative process into one that drives performance, development, and accountability. It also helps to create a clear, meaningful link between the work teachers do in the classroom and state requirements.

Englewood Schools in Colorado, recently selected Halogen to connect teaching practices with student achievement outcomes, "I've had great success implementing Halogen in a previous school district and knew the value it would bring to our evaluations in Englewood," explained Linda Shamlin, Director of Human Resources & Benefits, Englewood Schools. "Not only does Halogen eliminate the inefficiencies we face with a manual, paper and pencil process but it turns a one time, year-end event into a year-long process. This improves employee-supervisor collaboration and provides us with actionable information to enhance staff performance with continuous professional development. The targeted end result being improved student achievement."
