Teacher Career Ladders in Utah: Perspectives on Early Stages.
Peterson, Ken, Ed.; And Others
The status of teacher career ladders in Utah is discussed from five different perspectives. Jim Wilson, representing the Legislative Research Analyst's Office and General Counsel of the Legislature, speaks about legislative intent from the past year and what legislators thought would happen and wanted to happen regarding career ladder bills which have been introduced. He also offers insights into what legislators think educators are doing with the career ladder issue. Don Ulmer, of the Utah Educational Association, discusses the activities of teacher groups in the state, ideas they have, and assistance they have received. Nick Franklin, president-elect of the Alpine Educational Association, addresses the career ladder issue from a teacher's perspective. Tony Mitchell, Superintendent of the Park City School District, talks about a superintendent's perspective and current potential problems of career ladders. LeRue Winget, from the Utah State Office of Education, describes the approval process for local education agencies' plans for teacher career ladders. A session for comments from the audience follows the presentations. (JD)
