Promising practices of flexibilities, efficiencies, and differentiation of the appeals process and procedures
Did You Know?
An appeals process is required by legislation for those non-probationary teachers at risk of losing status based on a final effectiveness rating of less than effective for two consecutive years. Districts may include in their policy or negotiated agreements an additional appeals process for probationary teachers who receive a less than effective final effectiveness rating.
Ideas for the Appeals Process
Example of a grievance process
One district annually trains a committee with representation from educators, special services providers, and district level staff. The committee participates in an annual grievance process. Each year all educators have the opportunity to grieve the rating they received if the evaluation process defined by district policy was not followed. The superintendent receives the recommendation from the committee and makes the final decision on the appeal.
