NTP Observations


Use the NTP Observation module to evaluate all or your Non-Teaching Professionals, including counselors, nurses, school psychologists, building principals, supervisors of special education, and other supervisory and nonsupervisory NTPs.

The NTP Observation is a year-long process, starting with the NTP setting goals and identifying component focus areas. Once goals, focus areas, and an action plan are established, the NTP Observation is submitted to supervisors for review. Feedback is provided followed by approval.  NTPs then return to their NTP Observation any time throughout the school year to provide updates and share artifacts. The process ends with a final submission of updates and a self-assessment. Supervisors then provide final feedback and component ratings which transfer to the 13-2 or 13-3 rating forms to inform year-end summative ratings.
