Vermont - Educator Performance Evaluation: Educator Evaluation Authority
In March 2011, the State of Vermont Department of Education created the Vermont Task Force on Teacher & Leader Effectiveness to develop guidelines for teacher and leader evaluation. Knowing and respecting the fiercely independent nature of Vermonters, Task Force members were committed to developing these guidelines for creating and assessing evaluation systems and not creating a plan or template for school districts to adopt. The Task Force developed standards for evaluation based on the InTASC standards for teachers. These standards were adopted by the Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators in 2011.
