Winter:  Teacher Evaluation/PERA and Job Descriptions

ILSPS 3, 5, 6      Domains 1, 3

December 8, 2015

Darcy Kriha will discuss the legal requirements and pitfalls of teacher evaluation with the new PERA requirements of the student growth inclusion. What are the “must do’s’ and “don’ts” in regard to these laws?  What importance and role does every educator’s job description play into this process?  What time-line, actions, and documentation must teachers and administrators complete? This legal seminar is designed primarily for principals, administrators, teachers and members of a school district’s Joint Committee.  These questions and many more will be answered during this half-day Legal Seminar.  Register here
