ROCHESTER, Minn. – With the school year right around the corner in Minnesota, teachers could be seeing different evaluations this year.
Recently, Rochester Public Schools passed new teacher evaluations for both new educators and tenured ones. Basically it means experienced teachers will under go a similar evaluation process as new ones, but every three years. New teachers go through this process every year. Leaders say it’s all about giving great feedback. “We want to encourage, and to really wrap our teachers in support. The best way to do that is to give them authentic feedback. We need to let them know exactly what they are doing well [in],” Assistant Superintendent for Rochester Schools, Dr. Brenda Lewis said.
Those evaluations will be in place this Fall.
