The new teacher evaluation system will be the focus of the discussion. Teachers say the process, which looks at 76 different objectives, including student standardized test results, could put many jobs on the line.
Teacher Jeff Gaynor says not all of his colleagues understand the new system. He believes that confusion could create problems for some teachers and allow the district to give them a bad evaluation.
Teachers want the school board to address their concerns during the 7:00 PM meeting. The group encourages the public to attend their press conference at 6:00 PM also at Forsythe Middle School.
