Case Study: Kipp Austin Public Schools

When we first partnered with KIPP Austin, a network of open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools in Texas, they had in place successful approaches to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and life. Recognizing the importance of retaining the educators driving these outcomes, the KIPP Austin team identified the need for a coherent, region-wide talent strategy.

We facilitated school and region leaders through the design and implementation of an evaluation framework that defined excellent teaching through multiple measures, with a focus on continual professional growth and development. At the core of the design was an investment in consistent, frequent, rubric-aligned feedback aimed at collaboratively improving teacher practice.

With a strong foundation for identifying excellence, we also facilitated leaders through the creation of long-term career pathway for teachers that, over the course of a career at KIPP Austin, provides opportunities for individual recognition and reward, including compensation, according to the impact they have on students and their school community.

Over the course of the engagement with KIPP Austin, we supported meaningful stakeholder engagement activities including piloting each evaluation measure as well as regular opportunities for teachers, leaders, and staff to provide feedback to continually improve design and implementation.

Today, the region has a transparent system of recognition and reward that aligns with KIPP’s strong professional culture, high expectations and commitment to teacher development. We continue to work with KIPP Austin, providing guidance and support as we measure impact and refine implementation to ensure systems provide world-class support for leaders, teachers, and students.

KIPP Austin has benefited tremendously from the expert consulting and support of the Hendy Avenue team. The resources and best practices they made available to us led to a comprehensive plan for the implementation of our own Teacher Career Pathway and the opportunity to learn from those that have designed and implemented similar systems in their districts already.”

"Sarah has been an invaluable resource in spearheading Coney Island Prep’s work to revamp our teacher evaluation system. She brought with her a wealth of knowledge on the subject, and has a unique ability to think about such a system from a variety of perspectives, including new teachers, veteran teachers, teacher coaches, and principals. Sarah took the time to learn about what makes Coney Island Prep different and unique, listened to what we wanted to get out of a new evaluation system, and worked to achieve that. We would not have been able to do this work without her.”
