Performance Evaluation Systems for Rigorous, transparent, and fair. Educators/administrators must be evaluated at least annually. Student growth is “significant factor” in the evaluation is based in part on data from state assessments, where available. The prior law required 40% of eval based on growth data for the school year. Local districts now set the percentage for school year. Local assessment results used in eval should be comparable across schools within district.
& Beyond 50% of evaluation for educators and administrators based on student growth data. Use state evaluation tool if additional laws are passed requiring specific statewide tool(s). If local evaluation tool is consistent with state tool, local tool may be used. Classroom observations must be included in performance evaluation system. Dismissal for those receiving 3 consecutive “Ineffective” ratings from year-end eval. Biennial evaluations allowed for those receiving 3 consecutive “Highly Effective” ratings from year-end eval.
