Classroom Observers

    All observation requests need to be submitted between August 15, 2019 and November 15, 2019 for the fall semester. Observers will work directly with the classroom teacher they are assigned to arrange dates and times to observe. *Observations will not open until Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

    For the Spring semester, observation requests need to be submitted between January 6, 2020 and March 6, 2020. Observers will work directly with the classroom teacher they are assigned to arrange dates and times to observe.* Observations will not open until January 14, 2020.

    *You will receive the classroom teacher assignment via email. Do not contact a teacher or campus principal without an email confirmation from Human Resources.

    Wylie ISD does not offer classroom observations during the summer.
