Evaluating Administrative/Supervisory Performance.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
This is a report on the third survey conducted on procedures for evaluating the performance of administrators and supervisors in local school systems. A questionnaire was sent to school systems enrolling 25,000 or more pupils, and results indicated that 84 of the 154 responding systems have formal evaluation procedures. Tables and discussions of the survey results cover the following topics: 1) probationary periods for administrators, 2) which personnel are evaluated and the frequency of evaluation, 3) the purposes of the evaluation, 4) evaluation procedures, and 5) help for the unsatisfactory administrator/supervisor. Sample evaluation forms from the following 11 systems are included: 1) Hawaii; 2) Montgomery County, Maryland; 3) Pueblo, Colorado; 4) Fairfax County, Virginia; 5) Peoria, Illinois; 6) San Antonio, Texas; 7) Arlington County, Virginia; 8) Clark County, Nevada; 9) Santa Ana, California; 10) Lincoln, Nebraska; 11) Mount Diablo, California. A brief explanation precedes each form or groups of forms, which are not presented as ideal procedures but to stimulate the thinking of individuals involved in developing or revising procedures for evaluating the performance of school administrative and advisory personnel. A selected bibliography of 30 items and the questionnaire form are included. (MBM)
