All administrators yearn for that magic tool to not only simplify their lives but also enrich their school. This complete collection of ready-made job descriptions, forms, and guidelines will breathe new life into stale job descriptions while enriching the teacher evaluation process. This book offers fresh ideas for developing staff through performance appraisals. Focusing on evaluations as coaching tools, the authors outline specific areas of importance for teachers and support staff including:(1) Building community by fostering respect; (2) managing learning with clear communication and quality questions; (3) growing professionally while building leadership skills; (4) dealing with burnout; (5) recognizing effective team features and characteristics; and (5) convenient, timesaving CD-ROM including all forms from the book. CD-ROM is PC and Mac compatible, and not sold separately. Six chapters comprise this book: (1) Introduction to the Performance Appraisal Process; (2) How to Write Effective Job Descriptions (with sample descriptions for bus driver, counselor, custodian, food service worker, media specialist, school nurse, paraprofessional, secretary, school security officer, elementary and secondary teachers, and support staff references); (3) Teacher Performance Appraisal Coaching Tools; (4) Support Staff Performance Appraisal Tools; (5) Summative Performance Appraisals; and (6) Conclusion.
