Certificated Personnel Performance Evaluation Act: Guidelines. Revised.
Ruckel, Carol J., Ed.
These guidelines are intended to assist Colorado school districts and boards of cooperative services (BOCS) in developing systems which meet the requirements of the Certificated Personnel Performance Evaluation Act (as amended), which mandates written systems for performance evaluation of all certificated personnel. The guidelines distinguish between which provisions must be followed by local school districts or BOCS and which are just recommended. The guidelines begin with definitions and clarifications and then outline the purposes of the performance evaluation system. District and BOCS responsibilities in appointing an advisory council, and the responsibilities of the council, are spelled out. Evaluation system components are listed, including specification of: personnel to be evaluated, purposes of the evaluation, standards for satisfactory performance, criteria used to determine performance, methods of information collection, frequency and duration of the evaluations, and preparation of a written evaluation report. In addition, the guidelines note that the evaluation system should provide for notices of deficiencies for teachers with unsatisfactory performance and development of remediation plans, and that state-approved evaluator training is required. State Board of Education responsibilities are listed, and the role and membership of the State Certificated Personnel Performance Evaluation Council are noted. The text of the Act is provided. (JDD)
