Weigh in on new teacher evaluation systems


If you serve on a PERA committee or team for your union, you understand the difficulties your district is facing in implementing a new evaluation system under the Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA). Complete this brief survey to tell the state what your district needs to get it done!

PERA requires Illinois school districts to adopt new teacher evaluation systems that address teacher performance and student growth. The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Performance Evaluation Advisory Council (PEAC) are conducting this statewide survey to assess the challenges districts are encountering as they work to design and implement their new systems.

Your responses will help PEAC and ISBE identify and address districts’ needs through potential resources and supports. Survey respondents will remain anonymous.

If you serve on a PERA committee or team, please take a few minutes to complete this important survey. Share the link with other members of your district’s PERA committee and ask them to weigh in too.  

The survey will close on March 24, so provide your input today.
