The Wake County school system is touting how things have improved in the district since use of the SAS EVAAS program has increased this school year.
In a school district press release earlier this week, principals say EVAAS is helping them to better educate students and assess teacher effectiveness. Prior to the 2009 school board elections in which the new board members urged the use of EVAAS, the program got a much cooler reception in Wake.
“It’s a wonderful tool,” said East Wake Middle School Principal Nancy Allen in the press release. “With just a click of a mouse and I can find out all kinds of information about my school. That’s how I’ve got to make the decisions about where to take my school.”
