Implementing a New Teacher Development and Evaluation System

August 2017

The research is clear: effective teachers make a significant difference in improving student outcomes. A primary mission of the Nashua School District must therefore be to support teachers in a process of ongoing improvement to become and remain effective teachers.

Background
 
In August 2015 the Nashua Board of Education approved a new Teacher Development and Evaluation System (TDES), based on the recommendation of the District’s Teacher Development and Evaluation Committee. This Committee is comprised of ten members appointed by the Superintendent and ten members appointed by the Nashua Teachers' Union, recognizing the importance of collaboration between the administration and the union in revising the current evaluation system. The work of the committee coincides with the recent release of a new state framework for teacher development and evaluation recommended by the NH Department of Education.
 
Full implementation of the new system begins in September 2015.  However, over time the Teacher Development and Evaluation Committee will continue to monitor implementation of the TDES and make recommendations for changes to the System to the Nashua Board of Education.
 

Contacting the Committee
