Bill Subjects



(1) Existing law expresses the intent of the Legislature that school district governing boards establish a uniform system of evaluation and assessment of the performance of all certificated personnel within each school district of the state. Existing law requires the governing board of each school district to evaluate and assess certificated employee performance as it reasonably relates to the progress of pupils, instructional techniques and strategies, the employee's adherence to curricular objectives, and the establishment and maintenance of a suitable learning environment. This bill would authorize a school district to use data from the California Education Information System, including data from the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System, for purposes of evaluating the performance of a certificated employee and determining whether to require the employee to complete professional development activities as a result of the evaluation. (2) Existing law authorizes the dismissal of a permanent certificated employee only for one of several specified causes, including unsatisfactory performance. This bill would provide, for purposes of that provision, that unsatisfactory performance also includes, but is not limited to, the failure of a certificated employee to satisfactorily complete professional development activities required as a result of receiving an unsatisfactory rating on a performance evaluation that is based in whole or in part on data from the California Education Information System.
