The primary objective of a school district's teacher evaluation system is to improve teachers' performance so they can become successful and contribute to the objectives of the district. If the evaluation does not produce this positive result, the teacher must be replaced, either by resignation or termination. The district's evaluation system thus serves a secondary function—the removal of the unsatisfactory teacher. This practical guide of legal considerations in school employee evaluation covers the documentation system, evaluates termination options,and includes sample letters and memorandums. Sections added or expanded since the previous edition include growth plans, discipline and social media, and First Amendment considerations.

This monograph is the definitive legal treatise, covering all legal aspects of the evaluation of teachers: what can legally be evaluated, how the evaluation can become the evidence for a termination, and how to either avoid or win lawsuits involving alleged wrongful teacher dismissals. This book will benefit practicing school administrators, supervisors of instruction, and all teacher evaluators. In addition, the work will be invaluable to attorneys, supervisors, professors of education or law, and college students.
