The Governor’s Conference held last Saturday, December 15TH focused on the PTEP Committee. The ability for teachers to be involved in putting together their evaluation system with administrators is crucial, and this was made possible by having a collective bargaining agreement. When the Union and management work collaboratively, a better work environment is the result. The committee has been working on this for many months and has been making great strides in evaluating teachers and principals. They have been able to discover weaknesses and help these employees improve their ability to give the best education for our children.
