In another effort to push through HATSAâ€™s â€œCTEPâ€, DOE is circulating a document asking teachers to sign that they â€œendorseâ€ this evaluation system. While signing doesnâ€™t negate your rights it will make it difficult in negotiations. Currently, your contract states that any changes to the teacher evaluation system must be made by a committee made up of teachers and administrators. While that committee met and started to develop a workable system, they stopped meeting when that system wasnâ€™t the one HATSA developed. Your evaluation system has a major impact on your professional life so letâ€™s make sure that it is a system developed for teachers by teachers not by people that havenâ€™t been in the classroom for decades and do not have to work under it.
