"Change is inevitable, it's coming."
Rich Follet is a teacher at Skyline High School in Warren County.
Greg Drescher, is the Assistant Superintendent.
He says instead of five things teachers are evaluated on, it's now seven.
And this year, it's not just a check list.
"Its now based on a rubric and the rubric describes each of the standards, and it describes behaviors that teachers should do if they're exemplary, proficient, needing improvement, or unacceptable." Dresher said.
At the end of the year, the teachers get an actual grade based on their performance.
"This is putting a numeric score on it, which is new."He said.
Follet says the new teaching standards aren't changing how they teach, just how they present it.
"We need to pre-test, teach, post-test and then offer some hard data to show how well our students mastered those objectives."
He said while he was skeptical at first, he realized this new system had a lot of valuable tools to offer.
"It's going to give us, give me, a wake up call on time management, give me a wake up call on focus, give me a wake up call on really, making sure I'm teaching the things that I'm going to teach. Rather then just expressing my intentions, or getting lost, or side tracked as the day gets busy."
He says even though it's a teacher evaluation, it's really for the students, and he thinks this will benefit everyone.
"It's just learning to speak a different language in an old familiar environment."
