A Case of Teacher Opposition to School District Assessment and Evaluation Policy
Fushell, Marian
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n142 p18-32 Jul 2013
Better School District introduced its assessment and evaluation policy and regulations in 2006. Three years later, the Director of Education learned that the policy was not fully implemented in all schools. The main issue was teacher noncompliance with the provision of interventions for students who miss assignments and tests or submit work late. Principals were aware of this issue in their schools yet did not address it. In 2010, the district commenced a review of the policy and developed regulations to support it. When released in 2011, the revised policy met with opposition. This case focuses on the district's process for policy development, teacher engagement in policy development, and the role of principals and other leaders in implementing change.
