Rules Concerning the Evaluation of Specialized Service Professionals

On May 15, 2013 the State Council for Educator Effectiveness (SCEE) presented its recommendations concerning the development and implementation of a performance evaluation system for licensed education professionals other than teachers and administrators. These “specialized service professionals” include personnel who provide support to teachers and students in areas that involve student physical, emotional, and social health and well-being.

The SCEE’s report is a companion to the 2011 recommendations on the development and implementation of an evaluation system for the state’s teachers and principals.

The department presented draft rules to the State Board at its July 2013 board meeting and held two hearings to receive testimony on the draft.  Final rules were adopted in December 2013.
