Please find information regarding PERA on this page. Information specific to Mascoutah School District will be added as it is made available to the MEA.
The ISBE website provides a great deal of information regarding PERA. Explanation of PERA from the ISBE website:
“In 2010, Gov. Pat Quinn signed the Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA), which requires all schools in Illinois to change how teachers’ and principals’ performance is measured. PERA requires districts to design and implement performance evaluation systems that assess teachers’ and principals’ professional skills as well as incorporate measures of student growth.”
