Developing an Evaluation System To Improve Principal Performance and Accountability.
Stine, David O.
The process of principal evaluation was studied in 17 elementary, unified, high school, and county school districts in California through various methodologies. The information analysis revealed that the three standard formats identified by L. Webb (1987) (free form, check list, and management by objectives) were used. In most cases, the evaluation systems included some aspects of each as part of the process. Most districts have clearly communicated criteria in the form of checklists and complemented them with some specific goals and objectives. The districts used a variety of criteria in different combinations, often accompanied by a specific set of program objectives but often lacking any professional improvement plan for the principal. Nine examples from these districts are included to give a range of the approaches used. Fifteen exhibits include the Association of California School Administrators Bill of Rights, the nine examples of evaluation systems, and supplemental information. (Contains 18 references.) (SLD)
