Chicago Public Schools has teamed up with the Chicago Teachers Union to create a new teacher evaluation system.

The new system, dubbed "REACH Students," centers around three components: teacher practice, student learning and student feedback.

The system was designed by two committees made up of teachers, former principals and officials from both CPS and CTU.

REACH will replace the current model of evaluations, which has been in place since 1970.
