At the September 20, 2019, the Wyoming State Board of Education (SBE) voted to withdraw proposed Chapter 29 rules, on district leader and school teacher evaluation systems, and promulgate revised rules adding language that clarifies schools districts’ locally designed leader evaluation system must align to a majority of the benchmarks within professional Standard One of the state-defined system. The standard encompasses clear and consistent focus on maximizing the learning and growth of all students.

During the 2019 legislative session, House Bill 22/House Enrolled Act 61 passed making changes to W.S. 21-2-304(b)(xv), impacting teacher evaluation systems. The SBE has a requirement to promulgate rules and regulations for implementation and administration of a comprehensive performance evaluation system for teachers. The new statutes went into effect July 1, 2019. In the rules, the SBE must establish general criteria for school district teacher performance evaluation systems that provide school districts flexibility in designing teacher evaluations to improve classroom instruction.
