Section 1.

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 individual student growth
in each subject assessed must be reported in terms of years of growth as compared to the
appropriate state 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.

total appraisal must consist of teacher-developed assessments that test state and local
standards and have been reviewed and approved by a school administrator. Each year,
a school administrator shall meet with teachers under this paragraph to review, modify
as necessary, and approve course or grade level expectations for student achievement
and growth.

(c) Up to 50 percent of the appraisal may be determined by a charter school or by
mutual agreement by the school district and the exclusive representative of teachers. The
appraisal must include at least two annual evaluations by a school administrator and parent
surveys. Other measures may include student surveys, peer observations and review,
teacher performance portfolios, video classroom observations with teacher reflection after

framework;

(4) a teacher is considered in "needs improvement" if the teacher's appraisal shows
evidence that the teacher's students, on average, experienced less than .9 years of growth
on the statewide student academic achievement measures defined in section 120B.35 but
more than one-half year of growth or the teacher received a performance rating of "2" or
worse under the district or charter school's framework; and

(5) a teacher is considered "ineffective" if the teacher's appraisal shows evidence
that the teacher's students, on average, experienced less than one-half year of growth on
the statewide student academic achievement measures defined in section 120B.35 and
the teacher received a performance rating of "1" under the district or charter school's
framework.

(b) Beginning the 2012-2013 school year, a school district or charter school must
annually apply an effectiveness rating to each teacher who teaches no subjects for which

(a) The board may place on unrequested
leave of absence, without pay or fringe benefits, as many teachers as may be necessary
because of discontinuance of position, lack of pupils, financial limitations, or merger of
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 (g) those teachers who, in the superintendent's
judgment, are able to provide instruction that similarly licensed teachers cannot provide.
The board is governed by the following provisions: paragraphs (b) to (k).

(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 a provisional license in the inverse order in which they were

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) Notwithstanding clauses (a), paragraphs (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
paragraph (b) or
(c) would place the district in violation of its affirmative action program,
the district may retain the probationary lower licensed or less senior teacher, the teacher
with less seniority, or the provisionally licensed teacher;
.

(e) 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.

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.

reinstatement of teachers who have equal seniority and who are placed on unrequested
leave in the same school year is negotiable; .

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

(h) 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) 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 9
, 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) The same provisions applicable to terminations of probationary or continuing
contracts in subdivisions 5 and 7 must apply to placement on unrequested leave of
absence; .

placed on unrequested leave of absence to receive unemployment benefits if otherwise
eligible.
