Educator Effectiveness & Evaluation

Jeffco has a rich tradition of attracting and supporting the most effective teachers and administrators in the classroom and at every school – a tradition of excellence in agreement with Colorado’s Educator Effectiveness Law.

SB-191, also known as the Educator Effectiveness Act, is about ensuring quality instruction in Colorado. The Educator Effectiveness Act changed the way principals and teachers are evaluated in Colorado with the ultimate goal of improving student learning by continuously supporting educators’ professional growth and ensuring that every student has effective teachers and school leaders.  The Educator Effectiveness Act requires that educators be evaluated in significant part (30%) based on the impact they have on the learning growth of their students.
