N.M. Code R. § 6.69.5.9 - IMPLEMENTATION OF THE HIGH OBJECTIVE UNIFORM STANDARD OF EVALUATION- ANNUAL

Current through Register Vol. 33, No. 7, April 5, 2022

A. No later than June 30, 2006, each school district adopt policies, guidelines, and procedures for annual librarian-teacher performance evaluation that meet the requirements of this regulation. The annual evaluation plan will be combined with the evaluation plan for licensure advancement provided in Subsection A of 6.69.5.10 NMAC to form an overall system for librarian-teacher evaluation and support.
B. No later than forty school days after the first of school of each school year, each librarian-teacher and his or her school principal shall establish a professional development plan for the librarian-teacher, with measurable objectives, for the coming year based on, among other things:
(1) the public education department's (PED) eleven librarian-teacher competencies and indicators for the librarian-teacher's licensure level; and
(2) the previous year's annual evaluation, if applicable.
C. Annual performance evaluations shall be based on, among other things, how well the professional development plan was carried out and the measurable objectives were achieved.
D. The school principal shall observe each librarian-teacher's program practice at least once annually to determine the librarian-teacher's ability to demonstrate state adopted competencies and indicators for each librarian-teacher's licensure level.
E. If a level II or level III-A librarian-teacher does not demonstrate essential competencies for a given school year, the school district shall provide the librarian-teacher with professional development and peer intervention, including mentoring, for a period the school principal deems necessary. If by the end of that school year the librarian-teacher still fails to demonstrate essential competencies, a district may choose not to contract with that librarian-teacher.
F. If a level III-A librarian-teacher does not demonstrate essential competencies at level III-A for a given school year, the school district shall provide the librarian-teacher with professional development and peer intervention, including mentoring, for a period the school principal deems necessary. If by the end of the following school year the librarian-teacher still fails to demonstrate essential level III-A competencies, the superintendent may recommend to the secretary of education that the librarian-teacher's level III-A license be suspended until such time as the librarian-teacher demonstrates the essential competencies at level III-A. Depending on the outcome of any due process proceeding under the Uniform Licensing Act, Sections 61-1-1 through 61-1-31, NMSA 1978, and if the superintendent verifies that the librarian-teacher meets the standards for a level II license, the librarian-teacher may be issued a level II license during the period of level III-A licensure suspension. A suspended level III-A license may be reinstated by the secretary of education either upon verification by a local superintendent that the librarian-teacher now demonstrates the essential competencies at level III-A or through the process described in 6.69.5.10 NMAC.
G. Any librarian-teacher who held a level II or level III-A license prior to July 1, 2005, shall meet the requirements of the high objective uniform standard of evaluation for his/her level of licensure through the annual evaluation process by September 1, 2006 or shall not be eligible for the increased base salary provided in 22-10A-11(C), NMSA 1978.
