Changes in Arizona Teacher and Principal Evaluations

The Arizona State Board of Education (SBE) Task Force on Teacher and Principal Evaluations, which includes AEA President Andrew F. Morrill, presented the Arizona Framework for Measuring Educator Effectiveness on April 25, 2011. 

In 2010, state lawmakers passed a law requiring the State Board of Education (SBE) to develop a framework for teacher and principal evaluations that includes quantitative data on student academic progress that accounts for between 33 percent and 50 percent of each evaluation outcome.  Below is the Task Force report and other resources.

Teacher Leader Model Standards
These standards were released by the Teacher Leadership Exploratory Consortium on May 5, 2011 and help to define how teacher leadership can be distinguished from, but work in tandem with, administrative leadership roles to support effective teaching and promote student learning.

InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards
These new model core teaching standards outline what all teachers across all content and grade levels should know and be able to do to be effective in today's learning contexts. They are a revision of the 1992 model standards, in response to the need for a new vision of teaching to meet the needs of next generation learners. This document incorporates changes from a public feedback period in July 2010.
