Senate approves education reform bill
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The state Senate has passed a bill that would develop a system to measure the performance of teachers, superintendents, principals and other educators.
House File 72 is part of the state's ongoing education reform effort to better prepare Wyoming students for college and careers.
The bill heads back to the state House for consideration of Senate changes, which include dropping the requirement of identifying specific teachers with student performance.
Lawmakers involved in the education reform say it's impractical and difficult to identify the so-called teacher of record because of the multiple teachers that may be involved in educating each student.
The bill mandates a system of measuring the performance of education leaders, such as superintendents, begin in 2015 and teachers in 2016.
