City or town where quarried or produced.

(a) 4.5 cents per gross ton of
merchantable iron ore concentrate, hereinafter referred to as "taxable ton," plus the amount
provided in paragraph (c),
must be allocated to the city or town in the county in which
the lands from which taconite was mined or quarried were located or within which the
concentrate was produced. If the mining, quarrying, and concentration, or different steps
in either thereof are carried on in more than one taxing district, the commissioner shall
apportion equitably the proceeds of the part of the tax going to cities and towns among
such subdivisions upon the basis of attributing 50 percent of the proceeds of the tax to

consideration to the relative extent of such operations performed in each such taxing
district. The commissioner's order making such apportionment shall be subject to review
by the Tax Court at the instance of any of the interested taxing districts, in the same

receive aid calculated from only the mine producing the largest taxable tonnage. When
more than one municipality qualifies for aid based on one company's production, the aid
must be apportioned among the municipalities in proportion to their populations. Of the
amounts distributed under this paragraph to each municipality, one-half must be used for
infrastructure improvement projects, and one-half must be used for projects in which two
or more municipalities cooperate. Each municipality that receives a distribution under this
paragraph must report annually to the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board and
the commissioner of Iron Range resources and rehabilitation on the projects involving
cooperation with other municipalities.

(c) The amount that would have been computed for the current year under Minnesota
Statutes 2008, section 126C.21, subdivision 4, for a school district within which the

must be
allocated to qualifying school districts to be distributed, based upon the certification of the
commissioner of revenue, under paragraphs (b), (c), and (f).

(b)(i) 3.43 cents per taxable ton must be distributed to the school districts in which
the lands from which taconite was mined or quarried were located or within which the
concentrate was produced. The distribution must be based on the apportionment formula
prescribed in subdivision 2.

(ii) Four cents per taxable ton from each taconite facility must be distributed to

qualify as a tax relief area under section 273.134, paragraph (b), or in which there is a
qualifying municipality as defined by section 273.134, paragraph (a), in direct proportion
to school district indexes as follows: for each school district, its pupil units determined
under section 126C.05 for the prior school year shall be multiplied by the ratio of the
average adjusted net tax capacity per pupil unit for school districts receiving aid under
this clause as calculated pursuant to chapters 122A, 126C, and 127A for the school year
ending prior to distribution to the adjusted net tax capacity per pupil unit of the district.

year of the distribution shall receive a distribution equal to the difference; the amount
necessary to make this payment shall be derived from proportionate reductions in the
initial distribution to other school districts under clause (i). If there are insufficient tax
proceeds to make the distribution provided under this paragraph in any year, money must
be transferred from the taconite property tax relief account in subdivision 6, to the extent
of the shortfall in the distribution.

(d) Any school district described in paragraph (c) where a levy increase pursuant to
section 126C.17, subdivision 9, was authorized by referendum for taxes payable in 2001,
shall receive a distribution of 21.3 cents per ton. Each district shall receive $175 times the
pupil units identified in section 126C.05, subdivision 1, enrolled in the second previous
year or the 1983-1984 school year, whichever is greater, less the product of 1.8 percent
times the district's taxable net tax capacity in the second previous year.

If the total amount provided by paragraph (d) is insufficient to make the payments
herein required then the entitlement of $175 per pupil unit shall be reduced uniformly
so as not to exceed the funds available. Any amounts received by a qualifying school
district in any fiscal year pursuant to paragraph (d) shall not be applied to reduce general
education aid which the district receives pursuant to section 126C.13 or the permissible
levies of the district. Any amount remaining after the payments provided in this paragraph
shall be paid to the commissioner of Iron Range resources and rehabilitation who shall
deposit the same in the taconite environmental protection fund and the Douglas J. Johnson
economic protection trust fund as provided in subdivision 11.

Each district receiving money according to this paragraph shall reserve the lesser of
the amount received under this paragraph or $25 times the number of pupil units served
in the district. It may use the money for early childhood programs or for outcome-based
learning programs that enhance the academic quality of the district's curriculum. The
outcome-based learning programs must be approved by the commissioner of education.

Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 120B.35, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

School and student indicators of growth and achievement.

The commissioner must develop and implement a system for measuring and reporting
academic achievement and individual student growth, consistent with the statewide
educational accountability and reporting system. The system components must measure
and separately report the adequate yearly progress of schools and the growth of individual
students: students' current achievement in schools under subdivision 2; and individual
students' educational growth over time under subdivision 3. The commissioner annually
must report a student's growth and progress toward grade-level proficiency under section
120B.299 as it relates to applicable state academic standards and the statewide assessments
aligned with those standards.
The system also must include statewide measures of student
academic growth that identify schools with high levels of growth, and also schools with
low levels of growth that need improvement. When determining a school's effect, the data
must include both statewide measures of student achievement and, to the extent annual
tests are administered, indicators of achievement growth that take into account a student's
prior achievement. Indicators of achievement and prior achievement must be based on
highly reliable statewide or districtwide assessments. Indicators that take into account a
student's prior achievement must not be used to disregard a school's low achievement or to
exclude a school from a program to improve low achievement levels.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective July 1, 2012, and applies to growth
data beginning in the 2012-2013 school year.

Sec. 4.

purposes of determining these ratios; staff characteristics excluding salaries; the number
of teachers in each performance effectiveness rating category under section 122A.411,
subdivision 3, by school site;
student enrollment demographics; district mobility; and
extracurricular activities. The report also must indicate a school's adequate yearly progress
status, and must not set any designations applicable to high- and low-performing schools
due solely to adequate yearly progress status.

(b) The commissioner shall develop, annually update, and post on the department
Web site school performance report cards.

(c) The commissioner must make available performance report cards by the
beginning of each school year.

Sec. 5.

[120B.361] DISTRICT AND CHARTER SCHOOL AND SCHOOL
DISTRICT GRADING SYSTEM AND SCHOOL RECOGNITION PROGRAM.

Subdivision 1.

District and charter school and school district grades.

(a)
Consistent with the state growth targets established under sections 120B.299 and 120B.35,
subdivision 3, paragraphs (a) and (b), and the school performance report cards under
section 120B.36, subdivision 1, an "A to F" grading system for district and charter schools
and school districts is established to help identify those schools and districts where
students are achieving low, medium, or high growth and achieving or not achieving
proficiency on statewide assessments under section 120B.30. For purposes of this section,
and using the state growth target, the commissioner annually must assign each district
and charter school and school district an "A to F" grade and then report that grade under
section 120B.36, subdivision 1, based on the following calculations:

(1) 50 percent of a school's grade must be determined based on the numbers and
percentages of students in each applicable student category for which assessment data
is disaggregated under section 120B.35, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), clause (2), and
paragraph (c), who achieved proficiency on the statewide reading and mathematics
assessments under section 120B.30 in the previous school year;

(2) 25 percent of a school's grade must be determined based on the numbers and
percentages of students in each applicable student category for which assessment data
is disaggregated under section 120B.35, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), clause (2), and
paragraph (c), who achieved low growth, medium growth, or high growth on the statewide
reading and mathematics assessments under section 120B.30 in the previous school year;

(3) 15 percent of a school's grade must be determined based on the numbers and
percentages of students in each applicable student category for which assessment data
is disaggregated under section 120B.35, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), clause (2), and
paragraph (c), who achieved low growth and did not achieve proficiency on the statewide
reading assessments under section 120B.30 in the previous school year;

(4) ten percent of a school's grade must be determined based on the numbers and
percentages of students in each applicable student category for which assessment data
is disaggregated under section 120B.35, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), clause (2), and
paragraph (c), who achieved low growth and did not achieve proficiency on the statewide
mathematics assessments under section 120B.30 in the previous school year; and

(5) using the calculations in clauses (1) to (4), a school district's grade must be
determined based on the combined average scores of all district schools.

(b) The grade a school or district receives under this subdivision must accurately
reflect the differences in schools' performances based on students' proficiency and growth
and the calculations required under this subdivision. A school or district may appeal its
grade in writing to the commissioner within 30 days of receiving notice of its grade. The
commissioner's decision regarding the grade is final. Grades given under this section are
nonpublic data under section 13.02, subdivision 9, until not later than ten days after the
appeal under this paragraph is complete.

Subd. 2.

District and charter school recognition.

(a) A school that received a
letter grade of "A" in the previous school year, improved at least one letter grade in the
previous school year, or improved two or more letter grades in the two previous school
years is eligible to receive a school recognition award.

(b) A school recognition award under this subdivision equals $100 per enrollee for
each eligible school. The commissioner must distribute the award to each eligible school.

(c) An eligible school that receives a school recognition award may use the award to:

(1) pay onetime bonuses for licensed staff employed at the school;

(2) pay onetime expenditures for educational equipment or materials to help
maintain or improve student academic achievement; or

(3) temporarily employ licensed or otherwise qualified staff to help maintain or
improve student academic achievement.

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, an award a school receives under this
subdivision is not subject to a collective bargaining agreement.

(d) To distribute the award at the school, and consistent with paragraph (c), an
eligible school may select a site team that includes at least the school principal or other
person having administrative control of the school, teachers employed at the school, the
parent of a student enrolled in the school, and a community representative to decide how
best to use the award. Alternatively, if by November 1 in the year in which the award
is made the site team cannot reach agreement or if no site team is selected, the school
principal or other person having administrative control of the school must distribute the
award.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment
and requires the education commissioner to use student performance data beginning in the
2011-2012 school year, determine and report a letter grade for each school and district,
and distribute school recognition awards beginning in the 2012-2013 school year and later.

most recent estimate of district basic revenue for the biennium that corresponds to the
prospective contract term to (2) district basic revenue for the previous biennium; teachers
may not strike for any issue relating to total compensation for the years covered by that
contract or submit any total compensation issue to interest arbitration under section

(a) The first three consecutive years of a teacher's
first teaching experience in Minnesota in a single district is deemed to be a probationary
period of employment, and after completion thereof, the probationary period in each
district in which the teacher is thereafter employed shall be one year. The school board
must adopt a plan for written evaluation of teachers during the probationary period that
complies with section 122A.411
. Evaluation must occur at least three times each year for a
teacher performing services on 120 or more school days, at least two times each year for a
teacher performing services on 60 to 119 school days, and at least one time each year for a

conferences, teachers' workshops, and other staff development opportunities and days on
which a teacher is absent from school must not be included in determining the number
of school days on which a teacher performs services. Except as otherwise provided in
paragraph (b), during the probationary period any annual contract with any teacher may or
may not be renewed as the school board shall see fit. However, the board must give any
such probationary teacher whose contract it declines to renew for the following school

interrupted for active military service and who promptly resumes teaching consistent with
federal reemployment timelines for uniformed service personnel under United States
Code, title 38, section 4312(e), is considered to have a consecutive teaching experience
for purposes of paragraph (a).

(d) A probationary teacher must complete at least 60 days of teaching service each
year during the probationary period. Days devoted to parent-teacher conferences, teachers'
workshops, and other staff development opportunities and days on which a teacher is
absent from school do not count as days of teaching service under this paragraph.

(e) A district must decide whether to issue a renewable five-year contract to a
classroom teacher at the end of the teacher's probationary period based on:

(1) the teacher's appraisal results and performance effectiveness rating under section
122A.411; and

Termination of contract after probationary period.

(a) A teacher who
has completed a probationary period in any district, and who has not been discharged or
advised of a refusal to renew the teacher's contract under subdivision 5, shall elect to have
a continuing renewable five-year contract with such the district where contract terms
and conditions, including salary and salary increases, are established based either on the

resignation is extended to the 30th calendar day following the adoption of said the contract
in compliance with under section 179A.20, subdivision 5. Such Written resignation by the
teacher is effective as of on June 30 if submitted prior to before that date and the teachers'
teacher's
right of resignation for the next school year then beginning shall cease on July 15.

(b) Before a teacher's contract is terminated by the board, the board must notify the
teacher in writing and state its ground grounds for the proposed termination in reasonable
detail together with a statement that the teacher may make a written request for a hearing
before the board within 14 calendar days after receipt of such the notification, and it

classes caused by consolidation of districts. The unrequested leave is effective at the
close of the school year. In placing teachers on unrequested leave, the superintendent
may exempt from the effects of paragraphs (b) to (e) those teachers who, based on the
teachers' effectiveness ratings under section 122A.411, are able to provide instruction that
similarly licensed teachers cannot provide or whose subject area license meets unmet
district needs for student instruction.
The board is governed by the following provisions:
paragraphs (b) to (j).

(a) The board may place probationary teachers on unrequested leave first in the
inverse order of their employment. A teacher who has acquired continuing contract rights
must not be placed on unrequested leave of absence while probationary teachers are
retained in positions for which the teacher who has acquired continuing contract rights is
licensed;

(b) Teachers who have acquired continuing contract rights shall be placed on
unrequested leave of absence in fields in which they are licensed in the following order:

(1) teachers with an "ineffective" rating under section 122A.411 in the inverse order
in which they were employed by the school district.;

(2) teachers with a "needs improvement" rating under section 122A.411 in the
inverse order in which they were employed by the school district;

(3) teachers with an "average" rating under section 122A.411 with four or more
years of teaching experience in the inverse order in which they were employed by the
school district;

(4) teachers with an "effective" rating under section 122A.411 with fewer than four
years of teaching experience in the inverse order in which they were employed by the
school district; and

(5) teachers with a "highly effective" rating under section 122A.411 in the inverse
order in which they were employed by the school district.

In the case of equal seniority, the order in which teachers who have acquired
continuing contract rights shall be placed on unrequested leave of absence in fields in
which they are licensed is negotiable;

(c) Notwithstanding the provisions of clause (b), a teacher is not entitled to exercise
any seniority when that exercise results in that teacher being retained by the district in a
field for which the teacher holds only a provisional license, as defined by the board of
teaching, unless that exercise of seniority results in the placement on unrequested leave of
absence of another teacher who also holds a provisional license in the same field. The
provisions of this clause do not apply to vocational education licenses;

(d) (c) Notwithstanding clauses (a), paragraph (b) and (c), if the placing of a
probationary teacher on unrequested leave before a teacher who has acquired continuing
rights, the placing of a teacher who has acquired continuing contract rights on unrequested
leave before another teacher who has acquired continuing contract rights but who has
greater seniority, or
the restriction restrictions imposed by the provisions of clause (c)
paragraph (b) would place the district in violation of its affirmative action program,
the district may retain the probationary teacher, the teacher with less seniority, or the
provisionally licensed teacher;
with a lower effectiveness rating or less seniority.

(e) (d) Teachers placed on unrequested leave of absence must be reinstated to
the positions from which they have been given leaves of absence or, if not available,
to other available positions in the school district in fields in which they are licensed.
Reinstatement must be in the inverse order of placement on leave of absence. A teacher
must not be reinstated to a position in a field in which the teacher holds only a provisional
license, other than a vocational education license, while another teacher who holds a
nonprovisional license in the same field remains on unrequested leave.
The order of
reinstatement of teachers who have equal seniority and who are placed on unrequested
leave in the same school year is negotiable;.

(f) (e) Appointment of a new teacher must not be made while there is available, on
unrequested leave, a teacher who is properly licensed to fill such vacancy, unless the
teacher fails to advise the school board within 30 days of the date of notification that a
position is available to that teacher who may return to employment and assume the duties
of the position to which appointed on a future date determined by the board;.

(g) (f) A teacher placed on unrequested leave of absence may engage in teaching
or any other occupation during the period of this leave;.

(h) (g) The unrequested leave of absence must not impair the continuing contract
rights of a teacher or
result in a loss of credit for previous years of service;.

(i) (h) The unrequested leave of absence of a teacher who is placed on unrequested
leave of absence and who is not reinstated shall continue for a period of five years until
that teacher's contract expires under subdivision 7b
, after which the right to reinstatement
shall terminate. The teacher's right to reinstatement shall also terminate if the teacher fails
to file with the board by April 1 of any year a written statement requesting reinstatement;.

(j) (i) The same provisions applicable to terminations of probationary or continuing
renewable five-year
contracts in subdivisions 5 and 7 must apply to placement on
unrequested leave of absence;.

(k) (j) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to impair the rights of teachers
placed on unrequested leave of absence to receive unemployment benefits if otherwise
eligible.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective for the 2013-2014 school year and
later.

Sec. 12.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 122A.40, subdivision 13, is amended to read:


Subd. 13.

Immediate discharge.

(a) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph
(b), a board may discharge a continuing-contract teacher teacher's renewable five-year
contract
, effective immediately, upon any of the following grounds:

(1) immoral conduct, insubordination, or conviction of a felony;

(2) conduct unbecoming a teacher which requires the immediate removal of the
teacher from the classroom or other duties;

(3) failure without justifiable cause to teach without first securing the written release
of the school board;

(4) gross inefficiency which the teacher has failed to correct after reasonable written
notice;

(5) willful neglect of duty; or

(6) continuing physical or mental disability subsequent to a 12 months 12-month
leave of absence and inability to qualify for reinstatement in accordance with subdivision
12; or

(7) the inability of the board to terminate at the close of the previous school year
under subdivision 9
.

For purposes of this paragraph subdivision, conduct unbecoming a teacher includes
an unfair discriminatory practice described in section 363A.13.

Prior to discharging a teacher under this paragraph, the board must notify the teacher
in writing and state its ground for the proposed discharge in reasonable detail. Within
ten five days after receipt of this notification the teacher may make a written request
for a hearing before the board and it shall be granted before final action is taken. The
board may, however, suspend a teacher with pay pending only for the first 60 days of the
suspension from regular duty. If
the conclusion of such hearing and determination of the
issues raised in the hearing after charges have been filed which constitute constitutes
ground for discharge, the board may, in its discretion, determine the teacher's salary or
compensation at the time of filing charges against the teacher, but must subtract the
amount of any payment made to the teacher during the first 60 days of suspension. If
the determination of the issues is favorable to the teacher, the board must not abate the
teacher's salary or compensation. The hearing must be held within 30 days of the board
action proposing discharge, unless otherwise agreed to by both parties
.

(b) A board must discharge a continuing-contract teacher with a renewable five-year
contract
, effective immediately, upon receipt of notice under section 122A.20, subdivision
1
, paragraph (b), that the teacher's license has been revoked due to a conviction for child
abuse or sexual abuse.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective September 1, 2011, and applies to
all discharge actions initiated by the board after that date.

Sec. 13.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 122A.40, subdivision 15, is amended to read:


Subd. 15.

Hearing and determination by arbitrator.

(a) A teacher whose
termination discharge is proposed under subdivision 7 on grounds specified in subdivision
9, or whose
discharge is proposed under subdivision 13, may elect a hearing before an
arbitrator
arbitration instead of a hearing before the school board. The hearing arbitration
is governed by this subdivision.

(a) (b) The teacher must make a written request for a hearing before an arbitrator
within 14 calendar days after receiving notification of proposed termination on grounds
specified in subdivision 9 or within ten days of receiving notification of proposed
discharge under subdivision
13. The hearing must be held within 30 days of the board
action proposing discharge, unless otherwise agreed to by both parties
. If a request for a
hearing does not specify that the hearing be before an arbitrator, it is considered to be a
request for a hearing before the school board.

(b) (c) If the teacher and the school board are unable to mutually agree on an
arbitrator, the board must request from the bureau of mediation services a list of five
randomly selected persons to serve as an arbitrator. If the matter to be heard is a proposed
termination on grounds specified in subdivision 9, arbitrators on the list must be available
to hear the matter and make a decision within a time frame that will allow the board to
comply with all statutory timelines relating to termination.
If the teacher and the board
are unable to mutually agree on an arbitrator from the list provided, the parties shall
alternately strike names from the list until the name of one arbitrator remains. The person
remaining after the striking procedure must be the arbitrator. If the parties are unable to
agree on who shall strike the first name, the question must be decided by a flip of a coin.
The teacher and the school board must share equally the costs and fees of the arbitrator.

(c) (d) The arbitrator shall determine, by a preponderance of the evidence, whether
the grounds for termination or discharge specified in subdivision 9 or 13 exist to support
the proposed termination or discharge. A lesser penalty than termination or discharge may
be imposed by the arbitrator only to the extent that either party proposes such both parties
agree to a
lesser penalty in the proceeding. In making the determination, the arbitration
proceeding is governed by sections 572B.15 to 572B.28 and by the collective bargaining
agreement applicable to the teacher.

(d) (e) An arbitration hearing conducted under this subdivision is a meeting for
preliminary consideration of allegations or charges within the meaning of section 13D.05,
subdivision 3
, paragraph (a), and must be closed, unless the teacher requests it to be open.

(e) (f) The arbitrator's award is final and binding on the parties, subject to sections
572B.18 to 572B.28.

Sec. 14.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 122A.40, subdivision 16, is amended to read:

Decision.

After the hearing or arbitration, the board must issue a written
decision and order. If the board orders termination of a continuing contract or discharge of
a teacher
, and its decision must include findings of fact based upon competent evidence in
the record and must be served on the teacher, accompanied by an order of termination or
discharge, prior to April 1 in the case of a contract termination for grounds specified in
subdivision 9, prior to July 1 for grounds specified in subdivision 10 or 11, or
within ten
calendar days after conclusion of the hearing in the case of a discharge or receipt of an
arbitrator's decision
. If the decision of the board or of a reviewing court is favorable to the
teacher, the proceedings must be dismissed and the decision entered in the board minutes,
and all references to such the proceedings must be excluded from the teacher's record file.

(a) All teachers in
the public schools in cities of the first class during the first three years of consecutive
employment shall be deemed to be in a probationary period of employment during which
period any annual contract with any teacher may, or may not, be renewed as the school
board, after consulting with the peer review committee charged with evaluating the
probationary teachers under subdivision 3,
shall see fit. The school site management team
or the school
board if there is no school site management team, shall adopt a plan for a
written evaluation of teachers during the probationary period according to subdivision
3
that is consistent with section 122A.411. Evaluation by the peer review committee
charged with evaluating
of probationary teachers under subdivision 3 shall occur at least
three times each year for a teacher performing services on 120 or more school days, at
least two times each year for a teacher performing services on 60 to 119 school days, and
at least one time each year for a teacher performing services on fewer than 60 school
days. Days devoted to parent-teacher conferences, teachers' workshops, and other staff
development opportunities and days on which a teacher is absent from school shall not be
included in determining the number of school days on which a teacher performs services.
The school board may, during such probationary period, discharge or demote a teacher
for any of the causes as specified in this code. A written statement of the cause of such
discharge or demotion shall be given to the teacher by the school board at least 30 days
before such removal or demotion shall become effective, and the teacher so notified shall
have no right of appeal therefrom.

(b) A probationary teacher whose first three years of consecutive employment are
interrupted for active military service and who promptly resumes teaching consistent with
federal reemployment timelines for uniformed service personnel under United States
Code, title 38, section 4312(e), is considered to have a consecutive teaching experience
for purposes of paragraph (a).

(c) A probationary teacher must complete at least 60 days of teaching service each
year during the probationary period. Days devoted to parent-teacher conferences, teachers'
workshops, and other staff development opportunities and days on which a teacher is
absent from school do not count as days of teaching service under this paragraph.

(d) A district must decide whether to issue a renewable five-year contract to a
classroom teacher at the end of the teacher's probationary period based on:

(1) the teacher's appraisal results and performance effectiveness rating under section
122A.411; and

(2) other locally selected criteria aligned to instructional practices in teaching and
learning.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective for the 2013-2014 school year and

basic revenue under section 126C.10, subdivision 2, as measured by the ratio of (1) the
most recent estimate of district basic revenue for the biennium that corresponds to the
prospective contract term to (2) district basic revenue for the previous biennium; teachers
may not strike for any issue relating to total compensation for the years covered by that
contract or submit any total compensation issue to interest arbitration under section

Subd. 6.

Grounds for discharge or demotion.

(a) Except as otherwise provided
in paragraph (b), causes for the discharge or demotion of a teacher either during or after
the probationary period must be:

(a) A teacher whose services are terminated on account of discontinuance of
position or lack of pupils must receive first consideration for other positions in the district
for which that teacher is qualified. In the event it becomes necessary to discontinue one
or more positions, in making such discontinuance, teachers must be discontinued in any
department in the following order:

inverse order in which they were employed, unless a board and the exclusive
representative of teachers in the district negotiate a plan providing otherwise.

(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of clause (a), a teacher is not entitled to exercise

[122A.411] TEACHER EVALUATIONS.

Subdivision 1.

Evaluation structure.

A teacher evaluation structure is established
to provide information about teacher effectiveness for teachers under section 122A.06,
subdivision 2, districts, and charter schools to use in developing and improving teacher
performance and student learning. The two-part structure contains:

(1) a teacher appraisal framework that identifies performance measures for
determining teacher effectiveness; and

(2) a mechanism for translating the performance data into a five-part teacher
effectiveness rating scale.

Subd. 2.

Teacher appraisal framework.

(a) Each school district and charter
school must create and implement a teacher appraisal framework. The framework must
translate performance measures and scores under this subdivision into five performance
effectiveness rating scores where "5" is the highest rating and "1" is the lowest rating. The
framework must be designed to give an effectiveness rating score that has 50 percent
based on assessment results under paragraph (b), (c), or (d), and 50 percent based on
district criteria under paragraph (e). The department, in collaboration with the Board of
Teaching, must make available to districts and charter schools appraisal frameworks and
other materials from evidence-based sources to assist districts and charter schools in
implementing an appraisal framework, consistent with this section.

(b) If statewide assessment results are available under section 120B.35, these results
are the basis for 50 percent of a teacher's total appraisal.

(c) If statewide assessment results are unavailable, 50 percent of a teacher's total
appraisal must consist of results from districtwide assessments of state and local standards.

(d) If no districtwide assessment results are available, 50 percent of a teacher's total
appraisal must consist of teacher-developed and administrator-approved assessments of
state and local standards. A school administrator shall meet with teachers at least annually
under this paragraph to review, modify if needed, and approve local course and grade-level
expectations for student achievement and growth.

(e) A charter school or a school board, in consultation with its teachers, must
identify the performance measures used as a basis for the other 50 percent of a teacher's
total appraisal under this subdivision. The appraisal must include data from parent
surveys and at least one annual evaluation performed by a trained school administrator
or an administrator's trained designee. Other performance measures may include student
surveys, peer observations and review, teacher performance portfolios, video classroom
observations with teacher reflection after viewing videos, measures approved as part
of an educational improvement plan under section 122A.413, and other highly reliable
research-based measures.

Subd. 3.

Teacher performance effectiveness ratings.

(a) Beginning in the
2012-2013 school year and consistent with subdivision 2, a school district or charter
school annually must use the following scale to determine a teacher performance
effectiveness rating for each teacher who teaches a subject for which statewide assessment
results are available under section 120B.35:

(1) a teacher is "highly effective" if the teacher's appraisal shows that the teacher's
students, on average, achieved one and one-half or more years of growth on statewide
assessments and the teacher received a "5" performance rating under the district or charter
school appraisal framework;

(2) a teacher is "effective" if the teacher's appraisal shows that the teacher's students,
on average, achieved at least one year of growth on statewide assessments and the teacher
received a "4" performance rating under the district or charter school appraisal framework;

(3) a teacher is "average" if the teacher's appraisal shows that the teacher's students,
on average, achieved at least 0.9 years of growth on statewide student assessments and the
teacher received a "3" performance rating under the district or charter school appraisal
framework;

(4) a teacher "needs improvement" if the teacher's appraisal shows that the teacher's
students, on average, achieved between 0.5 and 0.9 years of growth on statewide
assessments or the teacher received a "2" or lower performance rating under the district or
charter school appraisal framework; and

(5) a teacher is "ineffective" if the teacher's appraisal shows that the teacher's
students, on average, achieved less than one-half year of growth on statewide assessments
and the teacher received a "1" performance rating under the district or charter school
appraisal framework.

A teacher who does not meet both the growth and performance rating requirements
in any of clauses (1) to (4) receives the next lower effectiveness rating that immediately
follows the clause where the teacher met either the growth or the performance rating
requirement.

(b) Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year and consistent with subdivision 2, a
school district or charter school annually must use a teacher performance effectiveness
rating scale developed under this paragraph for each teacher who teaches a subject for
which no statewide assessment data exist. The district or charter school, in consultation
with its teachers, must define low, medium, and high academic growth and progress toward
grade-level proficiency for purposes of establishing teacher performance effectiveness
ratings so that a teacher is rated:

(1) "highly effective" if the teacher receives a "5" performance rating under the
district or charter school appraisal framework;

(2) "effective" if the teacher receives a "4" performance rating under the district or
charter school appraisal framework;

(3) "average" if the teacher receives a "3" performance rating under the district or
charter school appraisal framework;

(4) "needs improvement" if the teacher receives a "2" performance rating under the
district or charter school appraisal framework; and

(5) "ineffective" if the teacher receives a "1" performance rating under the district or
charter school appraisal framework.

(c) A teacher, other than a probationary teacher, who receives a highly effective or
effective performance rating under this subdivision is not subject to an appraisal under
subdivision 2, paragraph (e), in the next year after the teacher receives that rating.

Subd. 4.

Data gathering and analysis.

(a) Beginning in the 2012-2013 school
year, the department, in consultation with the Board of Teaching, shall assist a school
district or charter school in collecting and aggregating student data needed to implement
subdivisions 2 and 3. If the school district or charter school and the department agree that
an ongoing need exists for department assistance, the district or charter school and the
department shall enter into a data-sharing agreement. Any data on individual students or
teachers received, collected, or created that are used to generate summary data under this
section are nonpublic data under chapter 13.

(b) Beginning in 2014, the department annually by June 30 shall submit summary
data on teachers' effectiveness under paragraph (a) to the Minnesota teacher preparation
program or institution that prepared the teachers covered in that year's district and charter
school reports to the department.

Subd. 5.

Reports.

(a) Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, each school district
and charter school annually shall report to the department by July 15 the following
information about the school year just completed:

(1) each teacher's performance effectiveness rating determined under both
subdivision 2, paragraph (b), (c), or (d), and subdivision 3, paragraph (a) or (b);

(2) each teacher's professional preparation program;

(3) its appraisal framework; and

(4) its graduation rate.

(b) Beginning in 2014, the department annually by February 15 shall submit a
report to the committees of the legislature with primary jurisdiction over kindergarten
through grade 12 education policy and finance that analyzes and evaluates summary data
generated under paragraph (a) to determine the effectiveness of teacher appraisal systems
in improving teaching and learning.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

supervisory, or instructional leadership position shall develop a professional development
plan. Documentation of the implementation of the professional development plan of these
persons shall be included in the school's annual report.

is insufficient for this purpose, it may apply to the commissioner for building lease aid
for this purpose. The commissioner must review and either approve or deny a lease aid
application using the following criteria:

(1) the reasonableness of the price based on current market values;

(2) the extent to which the lease conforms to applicable state laws and rules; and

(3) the appropriateness of the proposed lease in the context of the space needs and
financial circumstances of the charter school.

A charter school must not use the building lease aid it receives for custodial, maintenance
service, utility, or other operating costs. The amount of building lease aid per pupil unit
served for a charter school for any year shall not exceed the lesser of (a) 90 percent of
the approved cost or (b) the product of the pupil units served for the current school year
times the greater of the charter school's building lease aid per pupil unit served for fiscal

Third-party reimbursement.

(a) Beginning July 1, 2000, districts
shall seek reimbursement from insurers and similar third parties for the cost of services
provided by the district whenever the services provided by the district are otherwise
covered by the child's health coverage. Districts shall request, but may not require, the
child's family to provide information about the child's health coverage when a child with a
disability begins to receive services from the district of a type that may be reimbursable,
and shall request, but may not require, updated information after that as needed.

(b) For children enrolled in medical assistance under chapter 256B or MinnesotaCare
under chapter 256L who have no other health coverage, a district shall provide an initial
and annual
written notice to the enrolled child's parent or legal representative of its intent
to seek reimbursement from medical assistance or MinnesotaCare for the individual
individualized
education plan program health-related services provided by the district.
The initial notice must give the child's parent or legal representative the right to:

(1) request a copy of the child's education records on the health-related services that
the district provided to the child and disclosed to a third-party payer;

(2) withdraw consent for the district to disclose information in a child's education
record at any time without affecting a parent's eligibility for MinnesotaCare or medical
assistance under section 256B.08, subdivision 1, including consent that the parent or
legal representative gave as part of the application process for MinnesotaCare or medical
assistance; and

(3) receive a statement, consistent with clause (2), indicating that a decision to
withdraw consent for the district to disclose information in a child's education record does
not affect a parent's eligibility for MinnesotaCare or medical assistance.

(c) The district shall give the parent or legal representative annual written notice of:

(1) the district's intent to seek reimbursement from medical assistance or
MinnesotaCare for individual education plan health-related services provided by the
district;

(2) the right of the parent or legal representative to request a copy of all records
concerning individual education plan health-related services disclosed by the district to
any third party; and

(3) the right of the parent or legal representative to withdraw consent for disclosure
of a child's records at any time without consequence, including consent that the parent
or legal representative gave as part of the application process for any public assistance
program that may result in a parent's eligibility for MinnesotaCare or medical assistance
under section 256B.08, subdivision 1
.

The written notice shall be provided as part of the written notice required by Code of
Federal Regulations, title 34, section 300.504. The district must ensure that the parent of a
child with a disability is given notice, in understandable language, of federal and state
procedural safeguards available to the parent under this paragraph and paragraph (b).

(d) In order to access the private health care coverage of a child who is covered by
private health care coverage in whole or in part, a district must:

(1) obtain annual written informed consent from the parent or legal representative, in
compliance with subdivision 5; and

(2) inform the parent or legal representative that a refusal to permit the district
or state Medicaid agency to access their private health care coverage does not relieve
the district of its responsibility to provide all services necessary to provide free and
appropriate public education at no cost to the parent or legal representative.

(e) If the commissioner of human services obtains federal approval to exempt
covered individual education plan health-related services from the requirement that private
health care coverage refuse payment before medical assistance may be billed, paragraphs
(b), (c), and (d) shall also apply to students with a combination of private health care
coverage and health care coverage through medical assistance or MinnesotaCare.

(f) In the event that Congress or any federal agency or the Minnesota legislature
or any state agency establishes lifetime limits, limits for any health care services,
cost-sharing provisions, or otherwise provides that individual education plan health-related
services impact benefits for persons enrolled in medical assistance or MinnesotaCare, the
amendments to this subdivision adopted in 2002 are repealed on the effective date of any
federal or state law or regulation that imposes the limits. In that event, districts must
obtain informed consent consistent with this subdivision as it existed prior to the 2002
amendments and subdivision 5, before seeking reimbursement for children enrolled in
medical assistance under chapter 256B or MinnesotaCare under chapter 256L who have
no other health care coverage.

(a) A pupil who is deaf, hard of hearing, or blind-deaf deafblind, may be admitted to
the Academy for the Deaf. A pupil who is blind or visually impaired, blind-deaf deafblind,
or multiply disabled may be admitted to the Academy for the Blind. For a pupil to be
admitted, two decisions must be made under sections 125A.03 to 125A.24 and 125A.65.

(1) It must be decided by the individual education planning team that education in
regular or special education classes in the pupil's district of residence cannot be achieved
satisfactorily because of the nature and severity of the deafness or blindness or visual
impairment respectively.

(2) It must be decided by the individual education planning team that the academy
provides the most appropriate placement within the least restrictive alternative for the
pupil.

(b) A deaf or hard-of-hearing child or a visually impaired pupil may be admitted to
get socialization skills or on a short-term basis for skills development.

(c) A parent of a child who resides in Minnesota and who meets the disability criteria
for being deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired, or multiply disabled may
apply to place the child in the Minnesota State Academies. Academy staff must review
the application to determine whether the Minnesota State Academies is an appropriate
placement for the child. If academy staff determine that the Minnesota State Academies is
an appropriate placement, the staff must invite the individualized education program team
at the child's resident school district to participate in a meeting to arrange a trial placement
of between 60 and 90 calendar days at the Minnesota State Academies. If the child's
parent consents to the trial placement, the Minnesota State Academies is the responsible
serving school district and incurs all due process obligations under law, and the child's
resident school district is responsible for any transportation included in the child's
individualized education program during the trial placement. Before the trial placement
ends, academy staff must convene an individualized education program team meeting to
determine whether to continue the child's placement at the Minnesota State Academies
or that another placement is appropriate. If the academy members of the individualized
education program team and the parent are unable to agree on the child's placement, the
child's placement reverts to the placement in the child's individualized education program
that immediately preceded the trial placement. If the parent and individualized education
program team agree to continue the placement beyond the trial period, the transportation
and due process responsibilities are the same as those described for the trial placement
under this paragraph.

classroom space for intermediate school district programs. This authority must not exceed
$43 times the adjusted marginal cost pupil units of the member districts. This authority is
in addition to any other authority authorized under this section.

(i) In addition to the allowable capital levies in paragraph (a), for taxes payable in
