Teacher Evaluation Plan Could Be Changing


Teachers aren’t happy about the way our state evaluates them. Top educators are now looking at making some changes to that process. BESE will look at a plan that would make it easier for new teachers to have job security.

State Education Superintendent John White says the details of the changes are still being formulated

Under the current plan, half of a teacher’s performance review is linked to student achievement. The other half is linked to observations in the classroom.

The evaluations will start being linked to tenure during the 2013-14 school year.

White is also going to address complaints from teachers at two Shreveport schools, including South Highlands Elementary where teachers already have students with top scores. But if those scores drop even slightly, teachers at one of the best schools in the nation will get poor reviews.

BESE is meeting on Wednesday, January 16 to talk about changes.
