ELIDA — During Tuesday’s meeting of the Elida Board of Education, Superintendent Don Diglia took a moment to tell the board about the legislation concerning teacher evaluations.
“As you are aware, one of the issues we will be dealing with this year is the new teacher evaluations system,” he said. “The fact that the law that addresses teacher evaluation is in two different pieces, House Bill 153 and Senate Bill 316, does confuse things a bit. We currently have a bargaining agreement that is in effect until September 24, 2014 and we will concentrate on House Bill 153.”
With the new teacher and principal evaluations, student growth will account for 50 percent and the other 50 percent will be based on teacher performance. New ratings are Accomplished, Proficient, Developing or Ineffective.
