2014 Senate Bill 817: Reduce “student growth” portion of teacher rating criteria (Senate Roll Call 272)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 37 to 0 in the Senate on May 14, 2014, to reduce the percentage of a teacher's "effectiveness" evaluation that must be based on student progress as measured by state test data (instead of other more subjective measures) from 50 percent to 40 percent, and delay implementation until the 2017-2018 school year. The original 50 percent figure was required by a 2011 law basing school employment decisions on these ratings.
