UAS Ed Leadership Program Presentation
Ed Leadership Program Director Dr. Martin Laster designed the course for superintendents and other educational leaders.
More than then forty-five participants from across Alaska attended a UAS Ed Leadership Program for training and college credit on the new educator evaluation regulations March 2 at the Baranof Hotel. The new educator evaluation regulations require the use of “student learning data” such as test scores to evaluate teachers and principals. Ed Leadership Program Director Dr. Martin Laster designed the course for superintendents and other educational leaders. He invited Commissioner of Education Mike Hanley, former Anchorage Superintendent of Schools Carol Comeau and Rob Thomason, current president of the superintendent’s association to join him in presenting the class. Dr. Laster presented his original research funded by the Institute of Social and Economic Research. Of the superintendents, college professors from other campuses, the commissioner and consultants present, there was a universal desire to participate in future UAS/AASA training opportunities.
