Grading the Teachers: A Look at Colorado's Educator Effectiveness Law

`Grading the Teachers' is topic for April 8-10 Jeffco LWV meetings.

The League of Women Voters of Jefferson County will focus on how Jeffco teachers are currently evaluated during its six unit meetings April 8-10. The League will present a summary of the 2010 law regarding teacher evaluation, its implementation, and current legislation and lawsuits surrounding it. Discussion will also cover Colorado's model plan for teachers and principals and how it is being implemented in Jefferson County.

A current bill in the Colorado Legislature seeks to delay the model plan rollout statewide and Denver lawsuit regarding "mutual consent hiring." A recent series of Denver Post newspaper articles served as a basis for this program. The Every Member Material can be found here.
