Local Measures

The temporary changes in House Bill 197, House Bill 164 and House Bill 404 of the 133rd General Assembly impact teacher, principal and school counselor evaluations. These changes, made in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, grant districts flexibility around educator evaluations for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years.

A major percentage of each teacher's evaluation comes from how much their students learn over the course of the year. For educators with no Value-Added data and no approved vendor data, schools should establish local measures, including student learning objectives, to measure student growth.

Types of Local Measures

  • Student Learning Objectives
  • Shared Attribution
  • Approved Vendor Assessments (for Category A teachers only)

Student Learning Objectives

A student learning objective is a measurable, long-term academic growth target that a teacher sets at the beginning of the year for all students or for subgroups of students. Student learning objectives demonstrate a teacher’s impact on student learning.
