BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's top school board is about to consider several changes in the state's new method for evaluating public school teachers. One of the changes includes making it easier for new teachers to land job security.

The issue is one of several high-profile topics to be discussed when the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education meets on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The panel also will consider whether to revamp the role of counselors in high schools, get public input on funding levels of state aid for public schools and do its first, annual job review for state Superintendent of Education John White.

The state has about 55,000 public school teachers.
