The Sharon public schools will implement a new teacher evaluation system this year, as all Massachusetts school districts must do, school Superintendent Timothy Farmer said. Level 4 schools – those struggling the most – and districts participating in the Race to the Top program are already using the system. Farmer called the new evaluation system a good one, saying it gives teachers 32 indicators of performance with specific language about what evaluators hope to see. “We’ve never really given teachers a road map to success like this before,” he said.
