403.85 – Evaluation of Certified Personnel

Evaluation of licensed employees on their skills, abilities, and competence is an ongoing process supervised by the building principals and conducted by approved evaluators. The District will evaluate certified staff performance on both instructional and extracurricular assignments and in accordance with state requirements. The goal of the formal evaluation of licensed employees is to improve the education program, to maintain licensed employees who meet or exceed the Board’s standards of performance, to clarify the licensed employee’s role, to ascertain the areas in need of improvement, to clarify the immediate priorities of the Board, and to foster communication about performance and areas for future growth.

This policy supports and does not preclude the ongoing informal evaluation of the licensed employee’s skills, abilities and competence.

It is the responsibility of the Superintendent/designee to ensure licensed employees are evaluated. New and probationary licensed employees are evaluated at least twice each year.

The requirements stated in the Master Contract between employees in the certified collective bargaining unit and the Board regarding evaluation of such employees will be followed.
