ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Several changes are in the works for New Mexico’s teacher evaluation system.
The Albuquerque Journal reports Education Secretary Hanna Skandera says the changes will address flaws that have recently put the evaluation system under fire.
They were presented to Skandera this week.
The changes include making sure state education officials schedule time to go over their data.
APS reported a big problem with its teacher evaluations saying that family medical leave wasn’t included in excused absences.
Districts around the state have reported similar problems.
Absences among other factors like classroom observation, student surveys and test scores make up a teacher’s evaluation.
