The 2013-14 school year is winding down and teacher evaluations are being delivered. As you finalize those evaluations it is important to be sure that everything within them complies with State law. This is particularly important for the 2013-14 school year as it is the first year that all school districts must be using a 1249 compliant system – no matter when their collective bargaining agreement was in place. Accordingly, certain requirements of section 1249 are now applicable to all school districts.
