Teachers could see changes to tenure

DENVER (AP) - New teacher tenure rules proposed for Colorado are getting their first review by state lawmakers who asked for them.

A House-Senate panel is meeting Monday afternoon to look at the proposed four-tier review standards for teachers. The state board of education approved the new evaluation standards to decide when teachers get employment protections sometimes called tenure.

Colorado lawmakers called for the new statewide tenure rules two years ago. Now the proposed evaluation standards have to go back to the Legislature before they can be tested in certain districts next school year. School principals would also be reviewed.
