BFK·Link® Roster Verification

In order to accurately link teachers to students for data quality, educator evaluation, and student growth purposes, public schools in West Virginia will conduct a Roster Verification process once per school year. Roster Verification involves principals, designated school support staff, and teachers in verifying which students were taught by which teacher(s) for a particular subject. Through Roster Verification, teachers review and edit rosters populated from WVDE data systems and then indicate when (which months) the student was in the classroom and the percentage of assigned instruction provided for each student. Principals then validate the teacher-verified rosters.

2014-2015 Roster Verification is Concluded!

Thank you to all the school principals and classroom teachers who participated!
