 Student Growth
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, appraisal systems in Texas, whether the state-recommended system or a locally developed system, will need to include a measure of student growth for principals and at the individual teacher level, unless exempted under DOI or charter.
One day training on SLOs  will be provided by the ESCs.  Participants will include campus administrators and/or superintendents, lead teachers or department heads.
