Most North Shore teachers get solid marks on evaluations


Statewide, more than 85 percent of the educators evaluated were rated “proficient,” according to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. About 7.4 percent of educators statewide were rated “exemplary,” 6.8 percent got a rating of “needs improvement,” and less than 1 percent were rated as “unsatisfactory.”

“I think it’s a good system,” Russell said. “It’s been a lot of work putting it in place and implementing it.” He said anecdotal feedback from Salem teachers was they got to see more administrators in their classrooms, which allowed them the opportunity to share ideas.
