Kentucky Education Board Considers New Teacher Evaluations

The Kentucky Board of Education is getting closer to voting on new evaluations for teachers and principals.

The panel said the new system would hold teachers accountable in new ways that would be consistent across the state. Currently, different school districts use different means of evaluating educators. 

The proposal before the board would use a variety of means, including student test scores and observations by peers and supervisors, to rate teachers as exemplary, accomplished, developing or ineffective.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the board will hold a work session in April before voting on the measure.
