Georgia wants to spend $758,000 in federal grant money to hire a team to develop a system to evaluate teachers and school administrators based on student performance.
The state Board of Education will take up the contract during its meeting later this week. The contract would pay for a team of up to 12 researchers to spend 18 months creating and implementing the system.
The new system will be piloted next year in 26 districts as part of the state's "Race to the Top" program. Georgia won $400 million in federal money last year as part of the grant competition.
Georgia was one of 11 states and Washington, D.C., to win money.
