Teacher Evaluation: Research to Legislation. A Study of Descriptive Data Being Used to Develop Statutory Law.
Broderius, Bruce W.
A bill was introduced in the Colorado House of Representatives dealing with provisions for a written employment performance evaluation requirement in conjunction with a teacher dismissal provision based on performance evaluation. This paper reviews the major evaluation concepts introduced into the legislative process (which were based on the initial analysis of school board policies) and determines why some concepts were not maintained. The document reports the major questions and problems identified by legal advisors to school boards, professional organizations, and the state department of education regarding the implementation of this act. The concept of using state and local councils to administer this legislation is discussed. Educational research provided the impetus for this bill which is considered one of the most significant pieces of educational legislation passed by the Colorado General Assembly in 1984. (DWH)
