Other committee members agreed that the new rating system is more fair and stream lined.

The evaluation score is based on three goals (professional preactice, student learning, district improvement) and four standards (instructional leadership, management and operations, family and community engagement, professional culture) and then an overall performance rating.

This form of evaluation can also be used for principals and teachers.

The report is available to the public upon request from the School Department.
