Ed colleges offered help for grads to earn “unsatisfactory” evaluations

Hi guys –

I was writing about Michigan’s in-progress teacher evaluation plan, and heard from Spring Arbor University about this plan. The school doesn’t know of any other Michigan colleges making the offer. Has anyone heard of such a thing in another state?


In response to Michigan’s impending new teacher evaluation system, Spring Arbor University’s School of Education has established the Spring Arbor University School of Education Promise, which will guarantee additional teacher training for any SAU graduates who receive ratings that are unsatisfactory within the new evaluation system. The SOE Promise will allow for graduates to take up to nine complimentary credit hours to help them gain expertise within the areas in which they are most vulnerable.
