The addition of student growth measures within teacher evaluation is required as part of the SC Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) waiver and are to be implemented within SC teacher evaluation beginning 2015-16. A Student Learning Objectives (SLO) is a student academic growth goal that an educator sets for his or her students.
