Board reluctantly OKs the state’s eval system

-A A +A

Year in Review > Search is on for new superintendent

By Tris DeRoma

There were some big happenings in around Los Alamos Public Schools this year.
There were some tumultuous moments in 2014, with teachers and administrators at odds over the state’s recommended teacher evaluation plans.
In July, the Los Alamos School Board, faced with either adopting the New Mexico’s Department of Public Education’s teacher evaluation plan as is, or adopt one recently created by the district that NMPED would allow using its criteria and basic outline, reluctantly voted to adopt its own plan.
At a June board meeting, Superintendent of Schools Gene Schmidt presented the board with its version of the plan, which was created with the help of a special committee of teachers and administrators.
“The board actually has a choice. The choice is to not accept this plan, and the state will choose one for us,” he said. “Accept this plan as the best of the limited flexible opportunities we have, and in the minority report, we will express our concerns.”
