Staff Accountability Plan for New Mexico Schools: Provisions and Directives. [and] Questions and Answers.
Hall, Carroll L.
In an effort to explain the Staff Accountability Plan for New Mexico's schools, two pamphlets were developed. Designed to address the issue of teacher accountability and certification, pamphlet 1 presents the three provisions of the New Mexico Staff Accountability Plan. The plan requires: (1) a written basic skills assessment as part of teacher training programs; (2) a written assessment of general professional knowledge for initial certification; and (3) an integrated program of on-the-job performance evaluation criteria of effective teaching and staff development activities. To ensure adequate opportunities for review of each of the recommendations, a six-step process is outlined, followed by a brief word about the implementation of the plan. In the second pamphlet, over twenty common concerns regarding the basic skills examination, certification, and evaluation criteria are presented in question and answer format. (LH)
