2220-10 | Evaluation of School Administrators

Date Approved:
Date Reviewed/Amended: March 17 2008

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. 

The evaluation involves a process of professional reflection, self-evaluation, and the provision of meaningful feedback through the compilation of relevant, supporting data and documents. Thus, the responsibility for evaluation is shared between each of the School-based Administrators and the Superintendent of Schools. 

The professional appraisal process is guided by the Vision, Mission, and Principles of School District 52 (Prince Rupert). 

The School-based Administrators Evaluation system includes the following components: 

  1. performance standards and indicators for each area of professional responsibility; 
  2. a system of data collection that involves multiple sources; and 
  3. a procedure for conducting performance reviews that emphasizes accountability, promotes professional growth, and involves the School-based Administrators as full partners in the evaluation process.
