Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 53A-1-401 allows the Utah State Board of Education (Board) to make rules to execute the Board's duties and responsibilities under the Utah Constitution and state law; Subsections 53A-1-402(1)(a)(i) and (ii) require the Board to establish rules and minimum standards for the qualification and certification of educators and for required school administrative and supervisory services; and Section 53A-8a-301 directs the Board to adopt rules to guide schools' district employee evaluations.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comment has been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Rule R277-531 continues to be necessary because it provides a statewide educator evaluation system framework that includes required Board-directed expectations and components and additional school district determined components and procedures to ensure the availability of data about educator effectiveness. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
