Teacher bill still pending at Colorado Capitol

DENVER — A bill changing the way teachers earn and keep tenure is still pending as Colorado lawmakers wrap up their annual session.

The proposal is up for a vote today afternoon in the House Appropriations Committee. If it passes, it will be debated by the full House later in the day.

Under the legislation, teachers would be evaluated each year with at least half their rating based on whether their students have improved during the school year. Teachers would earn the equivalent of tenure status if they’ve increased student performance for three straight years. Teachers who already have tenure would lose it if their students don’t show progress for two straight years.

The Senate has already passed it. Lawmakers must adjourn by midnight Wednesday.
