Staff Accountability Plan for New Mexico Schools.
Hall, Carroll L.
Based on 18 months of extensive research and study, the New Mexico State Department of Education developed the Staff Accountability Plan to address the issue of teacher accountability and certification. This plan, which consists of three provisions, came into existence as a result of concern expressed by the general public, legislators, and various segments of the educational community regarding the quality of performance of certified personnel and the instructional process. The Staff Accountability Plan includes: (1) a written basic skills assessment as a part of teacher training programs; (2) a written assessment of general and professional knowledge for initial certification; and (3) an integrated program of on-the-job performance evaluation utilizing criteria of effective teaching and staff development activities. The intent of the plan is to develop an approach which emphasizes the shared responsibility each professional educator and educational organization must assume to assure quality instruction.
