DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

A new evaluation system is coming for Georgia teachers and school leaders, but the changes are already in place in the Dougherty County School System.

All school systems must implement the new rules by next school year.

Dougherty County was part of a pilot program in 2011 because it is a race to the top district.

"It takes into account and it allows the teacher to play a major role in the evaluation process by providing different information and documentation to support what they are doing in their classroom in addition to the student achievement," said Sheila Marshall, the DCSS Director of Leadership Academy.

The evaluation measures look at both student achievement and growth.

Dougherty County fully implemented the program last year.

"Now we are at a point where we know it is here, it is here to stay and we're just trying to make sure that we're doing everything we can to prepare our teachers and our leaders to positively impact the academic performance of our students in the classroom," said Marshall.
