Teacher Appraisal Program, 1974-75.
Hyde Park Central School District, NY.
This teacher appraisal program, developed by the Hyde Park School District, is based on the following objectives: (a) clarifying performance expectations of the individual; (b) establishing short- and long-term job targets to bring about learner, professional, or program improvement; (c) improving the relationship between the appraisee and appraiser; (d) making appraisal relevant to on-going job performance; (e) accomplishing job targets; (f) establishing appropriate followup methods; and (g) periodically assessing program effectiveness. The appraisal process is made up of the following steps: (a) identify performance areas--let the teacher know what is expected; (b) set individual objectives--determine the specific objectives to be focused on during the year; (c) develop the work plan for the achievement and year-end evaluation of the mutually agreed-to-objectives; (d) monitor performance--gather the data to determine if job targets are being achieved; (e) assess the monitored data--assessment by both the appraisee and appraiser; and (f) schedule an evaluation conference and followup. Included is a description of teacher performance areas, delineating teachers' areas of responsibility. Also, general procedures of the Hyde Park program for the 1974-75 school year are outlined, and sample forms and worksheets are presented. (JCW)
