Panel recommends new Michigan teacher evaluation system

By mcee

An independent panel of educators is recommending a new statewide evaluation system for Michigan public school teachers and administrators that would include announced and unannounced classroom observations. 

The recommendations have been submitted to Gov. Rick Snyder, some state legislators and state Education officials, according to the Michigan Council for Educator Effectiveness.

Hearings could begin this summer if approved by the Legislature, and schools would be required to have the evaluation system in place by the start of the 2015 academic year.
