the board of education in evaluating, rating, and reporting, on the form to be

year, beginning in 1998. The Office of the Lieutenant Governor,

or otherwise release the evaluation results separately for any regional offices

basis, in such manner as to avoid reporting evaluation results on a regional
office of education by regional office of education basis.
