New Teacher Evaluation System information presented at Carter High School

A group of parents, teachers, librarians, administrators and community stakeholders attended the Dallas ISD New Teacher Evaluation System meeting held in District 6 this evening.

The 6:00 p.m. orientation, lasting just past an hour, was held at David W. Carter High  School.

District Management Council (DMC) was awarded a contract in June to develop the New Teacher
Evaluation System. Senior Advisor on the DMC Consulting Team, Dr. Abe Saavedra facilitated the meeting.  Dr. Saavedra is a former Superintendent of Houston ISD.

During and after the presentation, audience members were able to participate by asking questions and making comments.  Awareness that Dallas ISD will invest $2,000,000 in this project to develop a New Teacher Evaluation system sparked intense interest in purpose, design and implementation.
