ATTENTION: TEACHERS AND PRINCIPALS

On April 25, 2011, the State Board of Education (SBE) unanimously passed the proposed Arizona Framework for Measuring Educator Effectiveness. This action resulted from the passage of SB 1040 that directed the SBE to adopt and maintain a model framework for teacher and principal evaluation that includes quantitative data on student academic progress. ADE will continue to update this page in order to provide the most current information and resources to assist all Local Education Agencies (LEA) with the successful implementation of the framework in the 2012-2013 school year.
