How to Conduct the Evaluation Process. Tips for Principals from NASSP.
The process of performance evaluation of teachers and other school personnel should be conducted with their full knowledge and involvement. Due process procedures require that a teacher be fully informed of any negative appraisals by a superior, have an opportunity to discuss the problems, and receive guidance toward solutions. The following steps should be included in an evaluation process: (1) have a written evaluation system, (2) objectively identify areas that will be evaluated, (3) specify the level of performance expected, (4) schedule regular evaluation conferences with all employees, (5) be fair and honest in rating each area, (6) note continuing deficiencies in subsequent evaluations, and (7) be consistent. If serious problems with an employee may lead to dismissal, it is necessary to supplement the evaluation form and conference with a summary letter to the employee that details the areas covered, the weaknesses noted, and the suggestions and directions given. A sample summary letter is appended. (MLF)
