Round-up: Feds direct states to examine teacher quality, students study from home on snow days

Feds direct states to focus on equity in hiring teachers (The New York Times): The Obama administration has issued a letter to state superintendents directing them to develop plans to bring high-quality teachers to schools with a high proportion of poor students and racial minorities. Federal officials are also asking states to examine teacher evaluations and whether higher-rated teachers are more concentrated in affluent areas.

Schools begin to install ‘active shooter’ technology (AP): An elementary school in Methuen, Mass., is one of the first few schools to receive “active shooter” systems from Shooter Detection Systems, a Massachusetts-based company. The technology includes audio sensors that can detect the sound of gunfire and instantly alert emergency personnel.

Students study from home on snow days (AP): Some private high schools that provide students with computers or iPads are doing away with snow days by requiring students to complete schoolwork from home. The system is tougher to implement for schools that do not issue personal technology devices.
