Judicial Performance Evaluations
Read about 2014 Judicial Performance Reviews and FAQs about selection and retention of judges at the State of Colorado Office of Judicial Performance Evaluation website.
HOW ARE JUDGES EVALUATED?
Commissions prepare a narrative that includes the recommendation to voters on the retention of the judge. To evaluate the overall performance of a judge, commissions are required to use the following information:
- Results from surveys sent to persons who have sufficient experience with a judge: attorneys (including prosecutors, public defenders, and private attorneys), jurors, litigants, law enforcement personnel, employees of the court, court interpreters, employees of probation offices, employees of local departments of social services, victims of crime, and other judges and justices.
- Information from observing the judge in the courtroom
- Information furnished by the judge in a self-evaluation
- Review of decisions/opinions
- Review of individual judge statistics
- Interview with the judge
- In addition, commissions may use the following information:
- Information and documentation from interested persons
- Information from interviews with justices and judges and other persons
- Information from public hearings
Parker Democrats District Meeting - October
Attend the Parker Democrats District Meeting - October
Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Location: South Metro Fire Rescue Station 45, 16801 Northgate Drive, Parker 80134
The program planned for this meeting is "School Finance 101."
We hear frequently that public schools are not being adequately funded in CO, but rarely do we understand how the funding works and why this is the case. Confusion sets in when we hear about the Gallagher Amendment, the Tabor Amendment, and Amendment 23 and are told that only a few experts understand how these rules, all passed by well-meaning voters, interact and may actually conflict with one another. For this program, we are so fortunate to have as a speaker Sue Catterall, a person who has run for the Douglas County School Board, who is an expert in most issues dealing with public schools, and who is the Outreach Director of Great Education Colorado.
