Administrator Evaluations

Administrator Evaluation

This administrator evaluation system was developed in response to the updated Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Principals which was approved by the Virginia Board of Education on February 23, 2012.  These guidelines require all school divisions in the state to comply by July 1, 2013.  

The Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria set forth seven standards for all Virginia principals.  The model recommends that 40 percent of a principal's evaluation be based on student academic progress, as determined by multiple measures of learning and achievement, including, when available and applicable student-growth data from VDOE.  Standards related to instructional leadership, school climate, human resource management, organizational management, communication and community relations, and professionalism each account for ten percent of the evaluation and performance rating within the model.
