Evaluating School Administrators. A Guide to Establishing Criteria and Procedures.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
To help South Carolina school officials, a task force prepared this handbook for establishing criteria and procedures for evaluating administrator performance. The guidebook's first section notes the purposes of the publication and discusses states' and administrator associations' positions on administrator evaluation, the legal basis for evaluations, and three types of evaluation: narrative essays, forced-choice evaluations with predetermined standards, and evaluations based on established performance objectives. Section 2 describes seven steps for the establishment of an evaluation system, including developing board policies, policy implementation procedures, and job descriptions; selecting the evaluation system and designing an evaluation instrument; familiarizing the administrators and evaluators with the system; and implementing and evaluating the system. Implications for staff development programs are also noted. Finally, three appendices present examples of South Carolina boards' policies on evaluations, model job descriptions, and sample letters and forms for each of the three evaluation types from a fictional "Trihard School District."
