Educator Effectiveness

Trussville City Schools developed our own Educator Effectiveness observation tool.  A committee of administrators, counselors, and teachers researched best practice to create nine indicators for teachers to utilize as they developed the most effective instructional opportunities for students.   

New Teacher Information

New teachers can view this PowerPoint to learn more about our district, as well as information about professional development, curriculum, and technology.


According to the Alabama Council for Leadership Development (ACLD), the pursuant to the Alabama Administrative Code 290-3-2.01(44), a Professional Learning Unit (PLU) is a content driven, long-term unit of professional study for instructional leaders that fully addresses all knowledge and ability indicators under an Alabama Standard for Instructional Leaders. Professional study that constitutes a PLU requires multiple professional development experiences over time and will always be aligned with the Alabama Standards for Professional Development in Rule 290-4-3-01(3).
