A letter addressed to the Los Alamos Public School System from the New Mexico Public Education Department caused some excitement and, likely, some relief.
The letter comes right in the middle of a special committee’s efforts to formulate an alternative proposal to NMPED’s teacher evaluation plan.
The letter, which was from Matt Montano, the department’s Director of Educator Quality Division, seemed to suggest that NMPED is willing to streamline its evaluation process.
The department apparently came to this conclusion after obtaining data from this year’s teacher evaluation process, the first full year the process has been implemented.
“These updates are based on your feedback and lessons learned from year one of implementation,” Montano said in the letter. “They are data-driven revisions designed to streamline administrative efforts as well as to improve the NMTEACH process.”
The letter then went on to list the revised guidelines, which include:
• Districts and charters may conduct one observation for Highly Effective and Exemplary Teachers.
