TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas teachers and administrators are working with state Department of Education to develop an evaluation system to measure their performance.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/UnCvyA ) the evaluation system, called the Kansas Education Evaluation Protocol is a pilot program being used in about two dozen districts statewide.

It is part of the state's efforts to comply with the requirements of a federal waiver it received under the No Child Left Behind Act.

All school districts will have to implement some system of evaluation by the 2014-15 school year. Some may use the KEEP system, while other districts could use programs already in place.

State officials say the next step will be linking the evaluation system with student performance. A commission of teachers and administrators are working on that transition.
