Michigan Compiled Law (MCL) 380.1249 requires the board of a school district or intermediate school district (ISD) or the board of directors of a public school academy (PSA) to adopt and implement for all teachers and administrators a rigorous, transparent, and fair performance evaluation system that does all the following:
- Evaluates job performance at least annually while providing timely and constructive feedback.
- Establishes clear approaches to measuring student growth and provides relevant data on student growth.
- Uses the evaluations to inform decisions regarding effectiveness, promotion, retention, development, whether to grant tenure or full certification, and the removal of ineffective tenured and untenured teachers and administrators.
