High CLASS scores are even more important now that CLASS scores are tied to Recompetition. As CLASS certified observers, we provide Head Start programs with the opportunity for outside observers to come into your classrooms.
As outside observers, we have the objectivity needed to observe classrooms without the possibility of bias. We offer the opportunity for your Education Coordinator (or other CLASS-certified staff person) to join us for dual coding in a couple of classrooms. We provide the teachers with a debriefing after the CLASS observation. We also offer the opportunity for your Education Coordinator or Mentor Coach to sit in on the Teacher debriefings for continuity purposes. We will meet with the Head Start Director (and Management Team upon request) after the CLASS observations to discuss the results of the observations. In addition to the CLASS scores, we will also provide you with a report of the strengths & areas for improvement of each classroom as well as a report of program-wide opportunities for improvement & recommendations.
