Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA)
and Senate Bill 7

Optional Alternative Evaluative Dismissal (OAED) Process


Senate Bill 7 (Public Act 97-8) significantly changed the processes by which a tenured teacher can be dismissed. One of the most substantial modifications is the Optional Alternative Evaluative Dismissal (“OAED”) Process for PERA Evaluations, now codified at 105 ILCS 5/24-16.5. Only PERA-trained board members may participate in the vote to dismiss a teacher through this process.
