Earlier this month, MEA joined with other education organizations in a letter from State Superintendent Michael Rice to lawmakers urging the suspension of evaluations this year due to the pandemic.
The letter requested that the Legislature “amend state law to let our educators—teachers and building administrators—focus exclusively on the needs of children this year rather than enormously time consuming and less impactful educator evaluations.”

Lawmakers need to hear from you about the urgent need for this action. Contact them today – ask them to suspend evaluations and relieve some of the intense pressure educators are experiencing in this stressful pandemic school year.
