The Evaluation Process
As district leaders begin evaluating principals and assistant principals under the new model, one of the first priorities is ensuring that evaluators and administrators understand their roles and responsibilities at each stage in the process. The steps of the process are determined by the administrator's length of service and/or performance on the prior evaluation. The Phase 1 Process is used to evaluate administrators new to their district, school, and/or level and those scoring Below Expectations or Significantly Below Expectations on their most recent evaluation. The Phase 2 Process is used to evaluate veteran administrators who scored At Expectations or above on their most recent evaluation.The process guides below provide a timeline for evaluators and administrators, outlining the specific steps they need to take throughout the year.
Observations and Conferences
The Administrator Model combines self-reflection, observation, input of school staff and student data to create a complete picture of the administrator's performance. The effectiveness rating is calculated using a formula that is 50% qualitative and 50% quantitative. The 50% qualitative portion includes an assessment of the administrator's implementation of the teacher evaluation process (15%); the remaining 35% is based on the other sections of the TILS-based rubric. Visit the Document Library for Microsoft Word versions of the forms.

The 50% quantitative portion combines student growth (35%) and student achievement (15%). For principals and assistant principals, the growth measure used in the evaluation system is school-wide TVAAS. The school-wide measure is a combination of data for all tested grades and subjects. For the 15% component, The State Board of Education has approved a list of options. The list of approved measures is below as well as recommendations for scaling.
Ratings and Outcomes
The multiple measures of the administrator evaluation system result in an effectiveness rating that combines observations, input from staff and student data. The Summative Rating From is used to calculate the final rating. Visit the Document Library for the Microsoft Word version of the Summative Rating Form. The Summative Rating Form was updated (June 4) to explain calculations for assistant principals or others who are evaluated using the administrator rubric but are not scored on all indicators of the qualitative portion of the evaluation.
