Idaho State Department of Education
The State Department of Education is looking for a new communications director, and registration is open for the SDE’s prevention conference geared toward keeping Idaho schools and students safe.
Some school districts destroy classroom observations, while others keep them and were able to give them to the state for review. A state spokesman said submitting the observations for review “wasn’t optional.”
The state’s plan for complying with a new federal law says schools will be measured by either student growth or proficiency — whichever’s higher.
The executive director of the Idaho Association of School Administrators says his board members aren’t concerned about sharing out the new metrics, only the time commitment of the collection process.
