The state Board of Education is expected to consider a recommendation Wednesday to allow school districts to more slowly phase in a new teacher evaluation system for staff this coming fall. "This approach enables districts to implement the evaluation system in a flexible way, one that will increase confidence at the local level and decrease anxiety," about the new system, Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor said. "The idea will be to ramp up implementation for all certified staff in every school the following year." Under the proposal, districts will be allowed to use the new evaluation system for as little as a third of the schools in a district, rather than going district-wide, in the fall.
