NEPN/NSBA Code: GCOC
EVALUATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF
The Superintendent shall implement and supervise an evaluation system for all administrative personnel. A report shall be made to the Board annually on the performance of all administrators (i.e. MDOE Administrator Performance Report), with recommendations regarding their employment and/or salary status.
Formal evaluations shall be made at least once a year. They shall be conducted according to the following guidelines:
A. Evaluative criteria shall be in written form and made permanently available to the administrator;
B. Evaluations shall be made by the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent or immediate supervisor;
C. Results of the evaluations shall be put in writing and shall be discussed with the administrator;
D. The administrator being evaluated will have the right to attach a memorandum to the written evaluation; and
E. Results of all evaluations shall be kept in confidential personnel files maintained at the Superintendent’s office.
In keeping with the Board’s goal of employing the best qualified staff to provide quality education for all students, all administrators are expected to participate fully in the evaluation process, self-appraisal and continuous improvement of professional skills.
While supervision and evaluation policies and procedures are not negotiable in collective bargaining, the Superintendent is to seek appropriate involvement of administrators in the development and periodic review of the supervision and evaluation program, according to MRSA 20-A Chap. 180.
