Inclusion of Pre-Kindergarten and Other Early Childhood Staff in State Teacher Evaluation Systems. CEELO FastFacts
Connors-Tadros, L.
Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes
Federal Staff from the U.S. Department of Education asked the Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes (CEELO) to provide information on the number of states that include prekindergarten teachers in state teacher evaluation systems. This was a quick turnaround response to a request from the Office of Management and Budget. In response to this request, CEELO staff surveyed early childhood specialists in state departments of education and gathered research from additional states to respond to the information request. For the survey, CEELO sent a message through the National Association of Early Childhood Specialists in State Departments of Education (NAECS-SDE) listserv on January 17, 2014. Additional information was obtained from data collection in eleven states (conducted between October 2014 and January 2014) for a CEELO brief on the implementation of teacher evaluation systems with early childhood teachers. Twenty-four responses were received as of February 14, 2014. Herein, CEELO provides information on what is currently known about requirements for inclusion of state funded prekindergarten teachers in these 24 states.
