Public Reporting of Disproportionate Rates of Access to Educators
As required by the ESSA, the OPI must publicly report the percent of teachers described and determined as ineffective, out-of-field, or inexperienced. The public reporting on this page is consistent with applicable federal and state privacy law and policies.
Montana is a local control state and evaluations are done at the local level, therefore, the OPI does not collect data on local teacher evaluations.
Montana has defined the terms as:
Ineffective: Montana teachers who are non-licensed or show a pattern of ineffective practices as determined by local evaluation.
Out-of-field: Montana licensed teachers teaching outside their endorsed subject areas.
Inexperienced: Montana teachers with less than one year of teaching experience.
