Use Of Student Growth In Educator Evaluations

Concerning limiting the use of student academic growth in evaluating a licensed educator's performance.
2022 Regular Session
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
Bill Summary

The bill clarifies the purposes of licensed educator performance evaluations.

The bill directs the state board of education (state board) to adopt rules as necessary to ensure that:

  • Beginning in the 2022-23 school year, student academic growth is considered, without a percentage, along with the quality standards as part of a comprehensive evaluation of a teacher's or principal's performance; and
  • Student assessment scores may be used collectively at a particular grade level or the school-building level solely for specified purposes, and collective measures may not be used beyond the school level.

The bill specifies the measures a school district or board of cooperative services may consider in determining student academic growth for purposes of evaluating teacher performance.
