More Errors Uncovered In Idaho’s Flawed Teacher Evaluation Report

Administrators from three additional school districts have confirmed errors in a state report on teacher evaluation data released last week by the State Department of Education.

The report details evaluations data for more than 17,000 teachers in all 115 school districts and charter schools. It showed that administrators reported more than 91 percent of all teachers earned high marks on their evaluations from the 2015-16 school year.

The errors discovered this week were made for a variety of reasons. Administrators raised deadline issues; said they incorrectly filled out forms; and district leaders admitted the numbers they reported were incorrect.

Idaho Education News contacted leaders of nine school districts since the report was released Thursday. Administrators in seven districts confirmed errors or omissions.
