Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) --- The Colorado Department of Education is implementing an education effectiveness evaluation system for the 2013-2014 school year.
Teachers and principals in all 178 school districts in the state will have to follow set performance standards and will be evaluated on their work at the end of the year.
They will be ranked as highly effective, effective or ineffective. Two consecutive ineffective evaluations could lead to the loss of tenure.
David McCall is a teacher at Fruitvale Elementary School and said he thinks the evaluation system is a positive way to track the growth and learning development of his students and he looks forward to the feedback.
