APS District Mission Statement:

Strengthening Connections 
through Rigor, Relevance and Relationships

Since March 28, 2012, a team of AEA members and Auburn administrators has met to review the new Educator Evaluation Regulations that were approved by the Board of Education on June 28, 2011.  One of our charges was to determine, per DESE requirements, whether to adoptadapt, or revise the model contractual language created and published by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  At the final subcommittee meeting of May 8, 2012, the unanimous decision to adopt was made.  It is our recommendation, therefore, that the AEA and the School Committee vote in support of our recommendation.

As stated in the "Collective Bargaining" document provided as part of "Part I:  District-Level Planning and Implementation Guide," "Unlike the regulations promulgated in 1995, these educator evaluation regulations explicitly envision modification."  An Educator Evaluation Subcommittee will continue to meet throughout at least the next three school years to review additional requirements and make recommendations on how each can best serve the educators and educational program of the Auburn Public Schools, while still meeting our obligations as outlined in the regulations.

This will be a collaborative ongoing process characterized by open communication and respectful dialogue.
