New Teacher Evaluations Going Statewide

LOUSIVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Educators from across Kentucky are learning about the new way they will be evaluated beginning in the fall.

The Courier-Journal reports the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System is one of the topics at an education conference in Louisville.

Sharon Robinson, president and CEO of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, spoke about the upcoming changes, saying they will establish standards of practice.

The pilot program will be rolled out across the state in the upcoming school year. The system makes evaluations consistent in all districts, allows for peer observation and for student feedback.

In the past, different school districts have used different means of evaluating educators.
