School Board Designing New Evaluation Model

School Board Designing New Evaluation Model

The Johnson County School Board, at their last meeting, got a look at a plan for a new teacher evaluation model for the district from Assistant Superintendent Dr. Jeannie Iberlin.

So far there is only a plan to get things started, to form a committee and move forward in designing a new plan.

Dr. Iberlin said the current evaluation system in use is just not working, with many teachers and administrators feeling like they aren't growing in their profession.

The district, according to Superintendent Dr. Rod Kessler, had a system in place they liked until they, like all districts, were forced to adopt one of the state-approved evaluation systems.

Kessler and other administrators believe the district can go back to a hybrid system again and still meet the state's guidelines and requirements.

The committee to design the new evaluation system began working on the issue at their first meeting last week.
They will have the new system designed and ready for the next school year and re-evaluate where they stand at the end of the 2014-1015 school year.
