Evaluation System for School Administrators (ESSA).
Rooney, Patrick O.
During the past several years, the Ventura Unified School District has devoted much time and effort to the development of the concept of educational accountability. The management by objectives system, which has been developed and is presently being implemented in the district, and the evaluation procedures set forth in the Stull Act implementation policy are compatible components of the district's system of accountability. At the center of the district's system of evaluation is the goal of improving the quality of instruction for the students of the district. An evaluation system concentrates on the need for members of the staff to plan, develop, and implement ever-improving programs of education for students. Careful planning and preparation are mandatory in a system of evaluation. By the implementation of accountability systems, using the process of MBO, district and individual commitments are met. The system is not static and should be continuously reviewed to reflect changing needs and conditions. It is only through continual evaluation and modification that the system will continue to grow and meet the needs of the district and all individuals within the district. (Author)
