Teacher Evaluation Default Model

In 2011, a group of educators consulted with the commissioner to develop a default model for teacher evaluation.  This model must be used in the event a local district and the exclusive representative of teachers do not reach joint agreement on a teacher evaluation plan.

The draft model for piloting in the 2013-14 school year and all associated documents are published on this page and will be updated regularly.

Districts and teachers’ unions interested in piloting the model should read the memorandum below and communicate their joint interest piloting to the department
