Annual Assessment of School SLP's by Principals/Special Education Directors.
Callahan, Ruth A.; Reeves, Rebecca K.
The monograph presents the guidelines of the Georgia Department of Education for annual evaluation of school speech-language pathologists (SLP). A combination of assessment methods is recommended including observation and review of records. The philosophy and purposes of the SLP evaluation is briefly outlined and includes identification and reinforcement of effective SLP practices and identification of SLPs who do not meet the minimum standards. Two evaluation instruments--the Georgia Speech-Language Pathologist Evaluation Instrument and the Georgia Speech-Language Pathologist Duties and Responsibilities Instrument--are identified. The importance of training evaluators is stressed and a recommended timeline for annual assessment provided. The steps of the evaluation process are explained and diagrammed in flow chart format. They are: (1) orientation; (2) pre-evaluation conference; (3) specific procedures in implementing assessment measures; (4) scoring and written comments; (5) post-evaluation activity and notification conferences; (6) annual evaluation summary report; (7) the annual evaluation conference; and (8) professional development plans.
