President Jenner asks legislators to support comprehensive improvements to DPAS II-R evaluation system

In a March 31st letter to members of the Delaware General Assembly, DSEA President Frederika Jenner called for support in issuing a moratorium on the use of Component V scores in teacher evaluations "until such time as a fair, valid, and reliable method for evaluating student growth... can be determined." The letter provided a deep explanation of the problems and frustrations felt by educators and administrators across the state with the current system and offer avenues to fix and make the system actually do what it is supposed to do.

The letter, understandably, ellicited media coverage from the News Journal. Click on the links listed below to read the full letter sent to the General Assembly and the resulting coverage in the News Journal.
