FWSU LAUNCHES NEW TEACHER EVALUATION SYSTEM
On June 5th, the FWSU Board of Directors approved a new Teacher Evaluation System. The process to develop a new system began in the fall of 2012. After a full year of research and study, the FWSU Evaluation Committee (comprised of teachers, administrators, and a school board member) delivered its new evaluation document to the Board for approval. Implementation of the new framework will begin in the 2013/14 school year. Click here to review the new system and learn more about evaluation of all professional staff in our schools. Thanks to all of the members of the Evaluation Committee for their extensive efforts!
