Wilson School District Educator Effectiveness
Act 13 of 2020 revises the Act 82 Educator Effectiveness process used to evaluate professional employees in PreK-12 education across Pennsylvania beginning in the 2021-22 school year. The revised rating system affects classroom teachers, non-teaching professional employees, and principals, as defined in Act 13:
- Classroom teachers are defined as professional employees or temporary professional employees who provide direct instruction to students related to a specific subject or grade level.
- Non-teaching professional employees are defined as professional employees or temporary professional employees who are education specialists or provide services and are not classroom teachers.
- Principals are defined as principals, assistant or vice principals, and directors of career and technical education. NOTE: Supervisors of special education (non-teaching professionals under Act 82) are considered principals for the purposes of Act 13.
