ProComp: A Unique Policy
ProComp’s policy centers on promoting excellence in teaching and strengthening the partnership between educators and principals. In doing so, it has ensured that all DPS educators are working under the umbrella of a common set of goals that focus on ensuring Every Child Succeeds.
Built and tested by DPS and DCTA, ProComp’s design links the following central ingredients to improve student achievement:
• Best practices in teaching and learning
• Tools and data for measuring student growth
• Knowledgeable and motivated professional staff
• Evaluation of teaching practices
Through integration of these ingredients, educators are recognized for their success, supported in their work and incentivized to challenge themselves in their service to children’s education and the future.
