Stakes high for new teacher evaluation system
Student performance will factor into teacher’s evaluation.Hamilton, Middletown schools have started to implement system that will be required next school year

School districts across Ohio are preparing to implement the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System next school year, which will rate teachers based on how well their students learn.

Evaluations currently follow no strict guidelines and are based almost entirely on a teacher’s performance. Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, two areas will equally factor into a teacher’s yearly final grade:

• Teacher performance, or how well teachers perform during two yearly observations

• “Student growth measures,” or how well students perform on standardized tests and in other measurable areas depending on the subject taught.

In the end, each teacher will be designated Accomplished, Proficient, Developing or Ineffective

Hmm, kinda like a PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL, which has been going on in the private working world since before I started working and that was 46 years ago.

It is nice to see some type of teacher evaluation based on end results. Now, if we could just couple merit raises with the degree of performance, we should be closer to a system of evaluation that makes sense.

Wonder how long a teacher can remain as "DEVELOPING" or "INEFFECTIVE" before disposition can occur and what the almighty Teacher's Union will do when teachers are dimissed?
I'm so proud of my hometown and what it has become. Recall 'em all. Let's start over.
