Following a comprehensive evaluation of national vendors, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) selected Netchemia LLC to provide its TalentEd Perform cloud-based teacher evaluation software in response to the Virginia Department of Education’s new teacher evaluation requirements.

VBCPS, among the largest school districts in the nation with nearly 70,000 students, sought to improve and simplify the yearly evaluations and long-term data management of its nearly 5,000 teachers to track effectiveness and maintain its high evaluation standards in response to Virginia’s new requirements, which took effect July 1.

The Virginia Department of Education’s guidelines include evaluating teachers across six professional practice domains and incorporating student achievement data. Netchemia’s TalentEd Perform serves VBCPS’ needs because of its: Ease of use – Perform’s design and simplicity makes completing evaluations simple. Flexibility – VBCPS can customize Perform to its forms and processes, and change or update those forms and processes as needed. Power – Perform can report on evaluation results in a variety of ways, including division-wide, building-level and individually. Service – Netchemia’s customer service and customer satisfaction reviews.

“As Virginia reforms its performance evaluation requirements, divisions like Virginia Beach City Public Schools recognize the need for relevant, flexible and powerful evaluation and management tools,” said Carlos Antequera, CEO of Netchemia. “TalentEd Perform ensures that administrators and principals are able to effectively evaluate and manage data to maintain high K-12 education standards.”

VBCPS joins a growing list of 16 other Virginia school divisions that have adopted TalentEd Perform for their performance evaluation needs, including Roanoke City, Williamsburg-James City County, Washington County, Shenandoah County, Wise County, Smyth County, Wythe County, Russell County, Scott County, Winchester, Lee County, Greensville County, Alleghany County, Poquoson City, Nelson County and Cumberland County.
