Update from another Rosenthal tweet today at 9:25 am:
House ldr Sullivan on TVW seems to deem teacher evals dead: "In the

The Washington State Legislature will adjourn their session tomorrow (unless a special session is called by the Governor).
Among the last lame duck bills is the one that would change the wording of the state teacher evaluation bill for the use of test scores in the evaluation from "can" to "must."
