Nulification of LOE scores for the 17-18 SY
Teachers, I'm still learning about this process that has been afforded teachers who have a higher LOE score for the 16-17 SY as compared to the 17-18 SY. Below is an excerpt from the TEAM newsletter that was brought to administrators attention by Jennifer Guthrie. Your decision to nullify your LOE score from the 17-18 SY is personal and done at the school level. If you are interested in this process please see me/email me and I will follow the procedures in order get that done. This process must be completed by November 30th. As I get more information I will pass it along.
From the TEAM Newsletter:
This past spring, the General Assembly passed Public Chapter 1026, which added a new section to the law stating the following: “No adverse action may be taken against any student, teacher, school, or LEA based, in whole or in part, on student achievement data generated from the 2017-18 TNReady assessments.” To comply with the legislation, teachers and principals who have 2017-18 TNReady data included in their LOE (district-level TVAAS, school-level TVAAS, individual TVAAS, or TNReady-related achievement measure) may choose to nullify their entire evaluation score (LOE) for the 2017-18 school year at their discretion. For more information to guide decision-making around nullification, view the FAQ here. (I'm not sure the link will work off the Smore's platform. If not let me know)
An educator’s decision to nullify the LOE can be made independently or in consultation with his/her evaluator during the evaluation summative conference. Nullification is completed by the educator in the TNCompass platform. The deadline for an educator to nullify his/her LOE is midnight CT on Nov. 30. A detailed guidance document for managing and utilizing this process can be found here.
