PRINCIPALS – CLASSROOM VISITATIONS
Visitation of classrooms by principals is considered to be of utmost importance by the school board. Principals should devote as much of their time as possible to classroom visitations. Such visitations are for the purpose of evaluating classroom procedures as well as observing first hand the need for administrative services to a classroom teacher. Every effort should be made by principals to assist and cooperate with teachers in maintaining effective and meaningful classroom instruction.
Evaluation reports as required by the state should be submitted on official forms for each teacher. In addition, each principal is responsible for two complete evaluative reports for each teacher annually. Non-tenured teachers must receive a complete evaluation report four times each year until they have been placed on a tenure status. The forms and procedures are outlined in the Differentiated Supervision Plan.
The required number of classroom visitations and evaluative reports are to be considered minimum.
The superintendent is responsible to maintain a record of all evaluative reports.
