The Seattle Plan: Evaluation, Probation and Nonrenewal of Certificated Teachers. Revised.
Little, Gary M.
This booklet explains the statutory procedures for not renewing a teacher's contract or discharging a teacher in the state of Washington. It offers a fill-in timetable and step-by-step checklist that are used in the Seattle school district to help administrators meet statutory timelines. Appendix A contains procedures for evaluation of classroom teachers as found in the Seattle school district/Seattle Teachers Association 1978-79 collective bargaining contract. Appendix B contains a checklist from the same source that is the minimum evaluative criteria established by the state superintendent of public instruction. Appendix C offers a copy of the district's annual performance evaluation form and instructions for its completion. The booklet suggests that timeliness is crucial if a district's decision to nonrenew is to be upheld and if a teacher is to receive adequate opportunity to improve. (Author/LD)
