the Change?

 State Legislation oOn April 25, 2011, the State Board of Education

System
 The District Evaluation committee kept the following two questions in mind while working through the development of this new system.
 How do you design a teacher evaluation system to ensure that it is fair, objective, and un-biased?
 What do we believe good teaching looks like? 6

Evaluation Committee recommended that the BEST Standards in Teaching
Rubric be used to determine the teacher performance component, which is 67% of the process.
