Article 39-2.5 |

Summative Ratings and Forms |

On or before seven days prior to the last day of student attendance, an evaluator shall provide each teacher with all available components of their summative rating. The summative rating shall include observation scores, student growth scores if available and all other evidence used to determine the summative rating, along with the formula used to calculate the summative rating, provided that the rating shall not include scores from student surveys in school year 2012-2013 or 2013-2014 and shall only include student survey scores in school year 2014-2015 and thereafter if agreed by the Joint Committee. The Joint Committee will determine the timing of end of year (annual or biennial) summative evaluations for the 2013-2014 school year and beyond.

Summative ratings shall be based on the following scale in which points are earned in accordance with the plan.

Level Minimum Maximum
Unsatisfactory 100 209
Developing (Needs Improvement) 210 284
Proficient 285 339
Excellent 340 400

For purposes of layoff, the developing rating will be divided into two sublevels—“emerging” with a rating score of between 210 and 250 and “developing” with a rating score of between 251 and 284.
