BAKER, La. - Baker School Board teachers will find themselves under the microscope more often in the 2011-12 school year under the new comprehensive teacher evaluation program approved by the school board Tuesday night.

According to Board Vice President Elaine Davis the program will increase teacher evaluations from once a year to four times per year and uses master and mentor teachers to improve educational performance.

The program is designed to improve both teacher and student performance.

Interim Superintendent Ulysses Joseph said he and his staff researched several different programs before deciding on the Teacher Advancement Program.
