Changes in the cards in Willmar, Minn., on the heels of state achievement report


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District is likely to have a new administrative structure and a new teacher evaluation system when school opens in September.

The School Board held a workshop Wednesday afternoon to learn more about the state's new accountability system, developed after the state received a waiver from the No Child Left Behind federal education law.

The new teacher ev-aluations are re-quired by a state law passed a year ago.
