Doctoral students make presentation to Chatham school officials

Six UNC-Chapel Hill doctoral students on Wednesday presented Chatham County schools officials a report describing a method to conduct evaluations of teacher effectiveness.

The presentation, made to members of the Chatham County School Board, the superintendent of Chatham County Schools, and other top administrators from the school district, examined trends in evaluation of teacher effectiveness. The presentation also included a description of the McREL Teacher Evaluation System, which is being used in North Carolina and in several states across the country to evaluate teachers.

The students making the presentation were Jerry Buckner, Courtnee Cox, Tim Lancaster, Kylon Middleton, Matt Proto and Brad Walston. All six are in the School of Education’s Educational Leadership doctoral program.
