We have an excellent program here and we’ve really put a lot of work into having our teachers become be the best they can be and effective evaluations. So that piece has been put into place.” The board has also set their three goals for the new school year which include funding public education, connecting with the staff and school, as well as promoting a shared value and responsibility for public education across the school district and the entire peninsula. The agenda last night included discussion on how teachers will be evaluated. During a 4:00pm work session, this was determined and the school board has approved it.
