- Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra
Specifically, Idaho EdNews found that as many as 32 of the school districts in the state issued identical evaluation scores of "proficient" for every teacher under their jurisdiction.
Some district superintendents argued they were concerned about protecting the identities of teachers and the state didn't need to know all individual teacher data.
While recognizing the Danielson Framework could have been initially implemented better, Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra announced today the Education Department would "stay the course" on the teacher evaluation system.
The decision follows an internal investigation and "feedback from the field," Ybarra wrote in a statement.
