Pella Applies for Peer Evaluation Plan

At Monday night’s Pella Community School Board meeting, the district decided to move forward with plans for the Teacher Leadership Structure. Superintendent Greg Ebeling says that the district is applying to the Department of Education with a structure that features instructional coaches, curriculum leaders, and professional learning community leaders. Ebeling adds that the majority of participants would primarily remain in class teachers, with the two instructional classes working either part time in class or out of the classroom altogether. If the Department of Education approves the structure, the district would receive approximately $650,000 in additional funds to offset the cost of implementing the system.
