RE: Growth Score Appeals
According to SED, the forms for the growth score appeals included in the emergency regulations will be available this Friday, September 25. Eligible teachers will have until October 19 to file their paperwork. We will provide the link to the SED forms inFriday’s Leader Briefing.
Currently, eligible teachers are teachers who received a Highly Effective rating on their observations and an Ineffective on their growth score in 2014-15 and received an Effective or Highly Effective on their growth score in 2013 -14. During the 30-day comment period on the regulations, we will be seeking an expansion of the definition of eligible teachers to make more of our adversely affected teachers eligible to appeal their scores.
