Members of the Alabama board of education have voted to make the process of evaluating the state’s teachers more streamlined.

They also hope the changes will be more effective by clearing time for administrators to spend talking with their teachers instead of doing paperwork and tedious observations. The old system required administrators to record verbatim what teachers said and did while they were being observed in their classes.

Tommy Bice, the state’s deputy superintendent for education instructional services, oversaw development of the new system and estimates it shaves about six hours off the old process.
