Snyder signs law with new teacher evaluation standards

Posted: Updated:

A new state framework for evaluating Michigan's teachers and schools administrators has been signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder.

School districts and charter schools will have to base at least 25 percent of a teacher's evaluation on assessment and student growth data. The component will rise to 40 percent in the 2018-19 academic year.

Snyder said Wednesday that the law will help teachers "grow as educators through improved feedback and evaluations."

It is a follow-up to a 2011 law that overhauled teacher tenure rules but deferred decisions on establishing a statewide evaluation system.

The system was supposed to be in place for the 2013-2014 school year but was delayed pending legislative action.
