Teacher and Administrator Effectiveness Results
Select teachers and administrators were, for the first time, evaluated using the online North Carolina Educator Evaluation Instrument in 2010-11. This process is a cornerstone of North Carolina's award and participation in the federal Race to the Top grant program. This year, available results are online at http://www.ncpublicschools.org/recruitment/effectiveness/ and results will be incorporated into the NC School Report Cards site in the future.
