Senate Bill 10-191 requires all certified educators and specialized service professionals (SSPs) to have an evaluation that is 50% teacher performance (CITE 1 - 5) and 50% student performance (CITE 6). The 2015 - 2016 school year marked the first full implementation of CITE 6, meaning all educators and SSPs received both an effectiveness rating for CITE 1 -5, and an overall effectiveness rating for CITE 1 - 6. The overall effectiveness rating is the portability score reported to the state and is the score educators and SSPs "take" with them if they move to a new district, hence the term, "portability score."

The overall effectiveness rating works as follows:

All educators and SSPs receive an effectiveness rating of one, two, three, or four for CITE 1 - 5. In addition, educators and SSPs receive a CITE 6 score rating of one, two, three, or four. These two scores are added together. The score is then divided by two to represent the required 50% teacher performance and 50% student performance. All numbers are rounded to a whole number. Normal rounding rules apply.

An example is:

Someone earns a CITE 1 - 5 rating of two, and a CITE 6 score of three.

2 + 3 = 5 divided by 2 = 2.5 rounded to 3.

The overall portability score would be a 3.
