Administrator Evaluation, Reassignment, Non-Renewal, Demotion and Dismissal: Guidelines for a Fair Process.
Colorado Association of School Executives, Denver.
Designed as a discussion guide for administrators and school board members, this paper deals with the issue of "fair process" for school administrators. Fair process is defined as the right to be supplied with fair notice, probable causes, opportunity for improvement, and right to appeal prior to dismissal, nonrenewal, or demotion. The first chapter discusses the policies and procedures needed for administrator evaluation. Chapter 2 presents a wide variety of possible procedures for transfer, demotion, and dismissal of administrators. Chapter 3 deals with how to build the open and trusting relationships among board members and administrators that are the necessary foundations for all procedures. A lengthy appendix provides examples of policies, evaluation instruments, and fair process procedures used in Colorado school districts. (Author/JM)
