When disruptions in the delivery of instruction due to a disaster emergency occur during a school year, the bill prohibits a school district or board of cooperative services from considering student growth measures or other student performance measures in evaluating the performance of licensed educators until the disruptions have ceased for 2 consecutive school years and a baseline for student growth and performance can be reestablished. The bill makes an exception to allow the school district or board of cooperative services to use the measures in a school year in which there are disruptions in the delivery of instruction due to a disaster emergency, after consulting with the school district's or board's advisory personnel performance evaluation council. For the 2021-22 and 2022-23 school years, the bill prohibits a school district or board of cooperative services from using measures of student academic growth derived from the Colorado growth model or consideration of the performance plan type implemented by the school district or board of cooperative services or by a school in determining evaluation ratings for licensed personnel.
