    and Governor’s Office



PRIORITY ONE – IEA’s Guide
   Student growth data will be used to inform
    teacher evaluation
    ◦ Multiple measures must be used
    ◦ State test is not a growth model – not used

   Joint labor/management committee to work
    together as equals in determining substance
    of local plans

   If joint committee cannot reach agreement
    the areas of disagreement default to state
    plan



Key Components
   Default to areas of disagreement

   If a district and its union default to the
    state plan, 50% of the teacher
    evaluation’s is based on student growth



Other Components of the State
Plan
   Designed by the Performance Evaluation
    Advisory Committee – stakeholder
    involvement and national experts

   Develop guidelines about student
    attendance, mobility etc.




The State Plan
   All evaluators must pass an independently
    developed pre-qualified assessment
    before they can complete evaluations.

   All evaluators must be trained.

   Barrier to peer evaluation is removed

   Is allowed if union agrees.
