A teacher and an education activist have been appointed to the 15-member State Council for Educator Effectiveness by Gov. John Hickenlooper.
They are Costilla County teacher Kimba Rael and MiDian Holmes of Denver, a parent and Stand for Children activist.
The council was a key group in implementation of Senate Bill 10-191, the educator effectiveness and evaluation law now being rolled out statewide. The council developed the detailed recommendations for the system’s rules and regulations and now is involved in monitoring the system’s implementation.
Rael and Holmes fill seats vacated by teacher Brenda Smith and parent Towanna Henderson. By law, the council’s membership has to include members representing various education interest groups and professional backgrounds.
