Evaluation/Supervision   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board believes that regular and comprehensive evaluations can help instructional staff improve their teaching skills and raise students' levels of achievement. Evaluations also serve to hold teachers accountable for their performance. The Superintendent or designee shall evaluate the performance of certificated staff members in accordance with law and negotiated contracts. He/she shall ensure that evaluation ratings have uniform meaning throughout the district.

(cf. 4141/4241 - Collective Bargaining Agreement)

(cf. 4315 - Evaluation/Supervision)

Evaluations shall be used to recognize the exemplary skills and accomplishments of staff and to identify areas needing improvement. When areas needing improvement are identified, the Board expects employees to accept responsibility for improving their performance and encourages them to take initiative to request assistance as necessary, including participation in appropriate staff development and/or individualized teacher support and guidance programs.
