    7  performance salary schedule and personnel evaluation procedures
    8  and criteria:
    9         (1) At least 50 percent of a classroom teacher’s or school

   17  associated with statewide assessments may be used only if a
   18  statewide growth formula has not been approved for that
   19  assessment or, for courses associated with school district
   20  assessments, if achievement is demonstrated to be a more
   21  appropriate measure of teacher performance.
   22         (2) The student performance data used in the performance
   23  evaluation of nonclassroom instructional personnel shall be
   24  based on student outcome data that reflects the actual
   25  contribution of such personnel to the performance of the
   26  students assigned to the individual in the individual’s areas of
   27  responsibility.
   28         (3) For purposes of the performance salary schedule in s.
   29  1012.22, Florida Statutes, the student assessment data in the
   30  performance evaluation must be from statewide assessments or
   31  district-determined assessments as required in s. 1008.22(8),
   32  Florida Statutes, in the subject areas taught.
   33         Section 2. Paragraph (d) is added to subsection (8) of

   35         1008.22 Student assessment program for public schools.—
   36         (8) LOCAL ASSESSMENTS.—
   37         (d) Each school district shall establish schedules for the
   38  administration of any district-mandated assessment and approve
   39  the schedules as an agenda item at a district school board
   40  meeting. The school district shall publish the testing schedules
   41  on its website, clearly specifying the district-mandated
   42  assessments, and report the schedules to the Department of
   43  Education by October 1 of each year.
   44         Section 3. This act shall take effect July 1, 2013.
