    Curt: States PEPG Update

    From MDOE priority notice update 2-25-20

    PEPG: DOE will not hold SAUs accountable for compliance with state statute/regulations regarding professional growth/supervision & evaluation systems. Enforcement of locally developed and/or adopted policies, programs, and systems remain at the discretions of local SAUs.

    • The state is giving permission to districts to put PEPG on hold for this year, but the district can make the decision regarding what/how it is done.
    • Steering committee should be in the loop and approve decisions
    Discussion from other districts:

    Re: Probationary teachers in 3rd year 19-20

    • In light of the hardships proposed during this period of time of distant learning that third year probationary teachers would have a contract renewal decision made based upon the whole of their probationary years existing PEPG work.

    Re: Continuing contract teachers re: school year 19-20

    • The PEPG committee has decided that the PEPG responsibilities for all other staff for the school year 19-20 be extended to the end of the 20-21 school year, allowing the work that was completed prior to closing due to coronavirus to be carried over to the beginning of the 20-21 school year.

    ~Example:
    Was: observations, slos, growth plan 8-30-19 to 6-30-20
    Now: observations, slos, growth plan 8-30-19 to 6-30-21
