Louisiana - Educator Performance Evaluation: Educator Evaluation Policy
Compass is Louisiana’s educator support and evaluation system designed to provide all educators with regular, meaningful feedback on their performance. This system promotes a cycle of continuous improvement by providing aligned resources that guide educators throughout the year. The annual evaluations are based 50% of student performance measures. Act 54 of the 2010 Regular Legislative Session revamped the process for evaluating teachers and Act 1 of the 2012 Regular Legislative Session built upon that progress with requirements that teachers be paid and retained based on their performance.
