In 2010, S.B. 10-191 was passed by the Colorado State legislature. The bill changes the way both principals and teachers are supported and evaluated in Colorado with the ultimate goal of ensuring college and career readiness for all students. Some of the highlights of the bill include:
- Requires evaluating educators based on statewide standards of practice and student learning over time.
- Requiring all licensed educators to be evaluated every year, regardless of years of service.
- Makes non-probationary status tied to professional expertise rather than the length of service.
- Requires schools and districts to provide staff development for any identified needs in educator’s evaluation.
The Steamboat Springs School District has established an evaluation committee to make recommendations for the implementation of the new evaluation system as well as to provide staff development on the new system.
This page will be a central location for the educational staff of the district for the latest updates on educator effectiveness in the state, news on the progress of the new evaluation system, links to the Colorado Department of Education and their information on Educator Effectiveness, and links to the training resources that have been used in the SSSD trainings.
