Selection, Implementation, and Quality Control of a Personnel Evaluation System.
Cromwell, Sue A.
Among the six components of Louisiana's Shared Accountability Law, passed in 1977 in response to public demands for accountability in education, is the requirement that all certified and other professional educational personnel in the state be assessed and evaluated at least once every 3 years. Each of the state's 66 local education agencies was required to develop its own uniform personnel evaluation process that included the following elements: job descriptions, statements of individual goals and objectives, evaluations of performances in light of those goals and objectives, and remediation programs for those proving deficient. The law also required the state education agency to provide guidelines for local agencies to use in developing their evaluation processes and to review local agency compliance. This document describes the guidelines and the techniques used to review compliance with them and presents the forms used in the monitoring process. (Author/PGD)
