In addition to systems accountability, many states and districts have educator accountability systems.

States and districts that develop educator evaluation systems must ensure that the evaluation systems produce valid and reliable measures of the growth of students with disabilities, English learners (ELs), and ELs with disabilities. The evaluation systems should include results for all of these students, including those who participate in alternate assessments. Special educators and teachers of ELs have unique roles and responsibilities that need to be recognized when the systems are developed.
