Public schools; teacher contract and evaluation policies.  Makes several changes to the processes by which teachers and certain administrators are evaluated and retained. Teachers, assistant principals, and principals who have not achieved continuing contract status prior to the 2013-2014 school year may be eligible for three-year term contracts. Five years of service is required to attain term contract status. Teachers, assistant principals, and principals with term contract status will be evaluated in the third year of their term contract and will be informally evaluated at least once during each of their first two years. Teachers, assistant principals, and principals who have achieved continuing contract status prior to the 2013-2014 school year will retain their continuing contract status. Teachers, assistant principals, and principals with continuing contract status will be formally evaluated every three years, and evaluated informally at least once each year in which they are not formally evaluated. The bill also defines the standard 10-month contract as 200 days, of which a minimum must be 180 days of instructional time. The bill has a delayed effective date of July 1, 2013.
