Evaluation/Supervision   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees 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 staff accountable for their performance. The Superintendent or designee shall evaluate the performance of certificated staff members in accordance with law, negotiated employee contracts and Board-adopted evaluation standards.

(cf. 4141/4241 - Collective Bargaining Agreement)

Objective standards from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and/or the California Standards for the Teaching Profession shall be reviewed and may be incorporated in district evaluation standards with the agreement of the exclusive representative of the certificated staff.

(cf. 4119.21/4219.21/4319.21 - Professional Standards)

(cf. 4140/4240/4340 - Bargaining Units)

(cf. 4315.1 - Staff Evaluating Teachers)

Evaluation procedures may include observation of teacher performance in the classroom.

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. The Superintendent or designee shall assist employees in improving their performance and may require participation in appropriate programs. Staff members are encouraged to take initiative to request assistance as necessary to promote effective teaching.
