Iowa -- we'd like your feedback

Dr. Wise Requests Feedback for the Council on Educator Development - Teacher and Principal Evaluations 

A group of Iowans who make up the Council on Educator Development have spent the past two years studying teacher and administrator evaluation practices and professional development.  Their document represents their preliminary recommendations.  The council now needs feedback on these recommendations from Iowa's education community, including superintendents, principals, teachers, and school board members.

The following link will take you to an online survey, which includes instructions for submitting feedback:https//www.surveymonkey.com/r/CEDRec1015.  The survey will be open through November 30, 2015.  All survey feedback will remain anonymous.

Dr. Wise reminds us that gathering input is critical not only to this process, it is required by law.  The council was formed in the fall of 2013 in response to an education reform package adopted by Iowa lawmakers that year.  The legislation, House File 215, calls for a period of feedback beginning October 1, 2015.  Once the feedback is collected and analyzed, the council will use it to develop a final report.

Your feedback is important and appreciated.  Dr. Wise noted, "Your feedback is important and appreciated.  Thank you for taking the time to support this work and for all you do for Iowa's learners."
