A list of educational goals for the La Cañada Unified School District in the 2011-12 school year were approved at Tuesday night’s Governing Board meeting on a vote of four to one. School board member Cindy Wilcox was the lone dissenting vote.
Wilcox voted no because she wanted the board to include two new goals as to how district teachers are evaluated, including adding value-added data and internal teacher surveys (from parents and students) to the list of goals. Her motion was not seconded by any of her fellow board members.
Board member Joel Peterson said it was important to focus on the goals already in place.
“I think we have an enormous task ahead of us that’s going to take a lot of time and effort and it’s very daunting, especially with current funding levels,” Peterson said.
