Teacher and Principal Evaluations

SB10-191 set forth new laws requiring evaluation of teachers and principals, otherwise known as educator effectiveness.  The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has created a state model evaluation system based on recommendations in SB-191.  There are many components to the system including rubrics, determination of ratings, and teacher quality standards.  All the information can be found on CDE’s respective teacher and principal model evaluation system webpages.  Other school service specialists, such as school counselors, school nurses, etc., also need to be evaluated.  Information on evaluation of specialists can be found here.

A number of resources on educator evaluations are available online from our library.  Helpful resources include:
