Saranac Lake Central School District - Supervision and Evaluation

One of the longer articles of the SLCSD teachers contract is Article XII. Bargaining Unit Member Supervision and Evaluation (pages 10-13).

Here are a few things in section A of Article XII. New teachers get a minimum of three observations per year starting Oct. 15th of the school year. Observations should be made by mutual agreement at least 24 hrs prior to the observation. Note taking by the observer shall be done as inconspicuously as possible and the observer shall not participate in classroom activities in any manner unless expressly invited by the bargaining unit member.

Section B covers circumstances in which the building administrator becomes aware of significant pedagogical inadequacies in a bargaining unit member's performance. There are specific steps which must be followed to place a bargaining unit member into remediation.
