Annual Evaluation of School Counselors in Georgia.
Anderson, Joy
State law requires that all certified professional personnel employed in Georgia school systems have their performance evaluated annually by trained evaluators. The Georgia School Counselor Evaluation Program (GSCEP) was designed to be used across all systems and schools for annual formative and summative evaluation purposes. The process used to develop the model is described, as are the two evaluation instruments and the evaluation process. Results of the statewide field test and the first year of implementation serve as a backdrop for understanding why the program is no longer funded at the state level. In the spring of 1989 a 10-week pilot test of a draft of the evaluation instruments was conducted in 29 schools, and in 1989-90 a revised program was field tested in 171 school systems across the state. The program was approved for implementation in 1990-91. Only 2 of 131 counselors in the field test and 1 of 1,466 in the first year were found to be unsatisfactory. The lack of differentiation of the evaluation program in the face of its developmental and operational costs account for the fact that the state no longer allocates funds for this program. Three figures illustrate the discussion. Appendix A contains the evaluation instruments, and Appendix B presents survey results. (Contains 21 references.) (SLD)
