Educator Evaluation Posting Assurances

  • Legal Requirements

    In November 2015, Public Act 173 was signed into law providing clarity to the ongoing policy discussion about the director of educator evaluations in Michigan. Implementing Michigan’s educator evaluation law with fidelity is a key strategy in our efforts to see Michigan become a “Top Ten” education state within the next ten years. Educator evaluations are implicitly linked to the Michigan Department of Education’s Strategic Goal #3, to “develop, support and sustain a high quality, prepared and collaborative education workforce.”

    In June 2016, Public Act 170 was signed into law, specifically stating in Section 1249(8) that a “teacher” is defined as “an individual who has a valid Michigan teaching certificate or authorization; who is employed, or contracted for, by a school district, intermediate school district, or public school academy; and who is assigned by the school district, intermediate school district, or public school academy to deliver direct instruction to pupils in any of grades K-12 as a teacher of record.”
