Overall, Indiana educators are achieving in the classroom. That is what data released by the Indiana Department of Education revealed Monday.

For the first time in state history, school corporations are now required to report teacher effectiveness ratings.

More than 87 percent of teachers statewide received an evaluation rating of highly-effective or effective while less than 1 percent of teachers received an ineffective designation.

The evaluation model was implemented providing data results in four categories: highly-effective, effective, improvement necessary and ineffective.

Batesville Schools reported that all but one of the corporations’ 144 educators were rated effective to highly effective. One teacher evaluation revealed improvement necessary.

Decatur County Schools had one highly effective teacher, 25 effective, 9 teachers who need improvement and 3 teachers who are ineffective.

Franklin County reported 61 highly effective teachers, 89 effective teachers, 5 teachers who need improvement and no teachers who are ineffective.

158 educators were reported at Greensburg Schools. 92 percent of the staff was rated highly effective to effective with only two teachers who need improvement.

Jac-Cen-Del Schools reported 10 highly effective teachers, 41 teachers who are effective, and two teachers who need improvement.

One teacher was rated highly effective at Milan, while nearly 96% of other educators were rated effective.

Lawrenceburg Schools reported 127 educators in the corporation. 40 were rated highly effective, 75 were rated effective and two teachers need improvement.

South Dearborn Schools reported 17 teachers who are highly effective, 175 that are effective. No teachers need improvement or are ineffective, according to the data.

South Ripley reported 87 educators in the corporation with 35 rated highly effective, 49 effective, and one teacher who needs improvement.

Data revealed good results for educators at Sunman-Dearborn. Out of 236 teachers accounted for, 117 are highly effective, 104 are effective, 9 need improvement and 3 are ineffective.

“Hopefully these results show what we have known to be true for some time,” said Indiana State Teachers Association President Teresa Meredith. “For the most part our teachers are doing a superior job in Indiana schools. Now educators can stop holding their breath and take a look at the results themselves.”
