The Board is committed to the principle of accountability in the operation of schools under its jurisdiction. This accountability involves responsibility for the quality of educational leadership and management in District schools.
The evaluation of school administrators is the responsibility of the Superintendent of Schools and will be carried out under his supervision.
Evaluation is a normal and important step in a Supervisory Cycle established for school administrators. The purpose of evaluation is to improve and maintain the quality of service by assuring accountability for School-based Administrators. Furthermore, it is the goal of this process in School District 52 to support the continuous professional growth and development of these individuals in each of the schools that comprise School District 52 (Prince Rupert).
This is accomplished over the course of a two-year professional evaluation cycle for new administrators or a five-year cycle for veteran administrators.
