115C-334.  Assessment teams.

The State Board shall develop guidelines for local boards to use to create assessment teams. A local board shall assign an assessment team to every low-performing school in the local school administrative unit that has not received an assistance team. Local boards shall ensure that assessment team members are trained in the proper administration of the employee evaluation used by the local school administrative unit. If service on an assessment team is an additional duty for an employee of a local board, the board may pay the employee for that additional work.

Assessment teams shall have the following duties:

(1)        Conduct evaluations of licensed employees in low-performing schools;

(2)        Provide technical assistance and training to principals, assistant principals, superintendents, and superintendents' designees who conduct evaluations of licensed employees;

(3)        Develop mandatory improvement plans for licensed employees; and

(4)        Assist principals, assistant principals, superintendents, and superintendents' designees in the development and implementation of mandatory improvement plans.  (1998-5, s. 4; 2011-348, s. 7.)
