LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A new state framework for evaluating teachers and school administrators would take effect this academic year under legislation passed by the House.

The bill is a follow-up to a 2011 law that overhauled teacher tenure rules. The law deferred legislative decisions on establishing a statewide evaluation system.

Annual teacher evaluations would be based in part on students’ standardized test scores

The measure would require districts and charter schools, starting in the 2018-19 school year, to base 40 percent of a teacher’s evaluation on assessment and student growth data.

The legislation won overwhelmingly approval from the House on a 97-8 vote Thursday. The Senate, which approved a different version of the bill earlier this year, could sign off quickly.
