EVALUATION

 

 

TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS

 

The Richland Parish School Board believes the quality of teaching and learning is directly related to the performance of personnel who work in the school district.  It is therefore, the policy of the School Board to appraise the performance of instructional and administrative personnel in order to maintain performance at the levels essential for effective schools.

 

The Superintendent and his/her staff shall have the responsibility for developing, monitoring, and maintaining an effective and efficient performance evaluation program in accordance with guidelines as found in Regulations for Evaluation and Assessment of School Personnel, Bulletin 130, Louisiana Department of Education.  The observation, evaluation and assessment process shall measure the effectiveness of teachers and administrators as to whether they meet the necessary standard of performance.

 

The process for all observations, evaluations, teacher conferences, and related functions shall be conducted in accordance with state requirements, as well as regulations and other criteria enumerated in the district’s guidelines for Teacher Assessment and School Personnel Evaluation.  Evaluations shall be conducted annually.

 

Every effort shall be made by the school system to communicate to position holders the general goals of the system, the specific objectives of the position, the plans which have been made to support the individual as he/she performs his/her role, the standards of performance the system has established, the criteria it will employ in assessing performance, as well as components of an intensive assistance program for addressing those persons determined to be ineffective.

 

Copies of the assessment and evaluation results and any documentation related thereto of any school employee retained by the School Board shall be confidential and shall not constitute a public record, and shall not be released or shown to any person except as provided by state or federal law.

 

Should a teacher or administrator not agree with his/her rating, he/she may initiate grievance proceedings in accordance with the procedure for resolving conflict adopted by the School Board in accordance with La. Rev. Stat. Ann. §17:3883, as contained in the School Board’s personnel evaluation plan.

 

ALL OTHER PERSONNEL

 

In an effort to improve the level of job production and skill performance of the individual employee, evaluations of support personnel shall be conducted annually.  Performance evaluations shall be based on an employee’s job classification and the School Board’s adopted standards for the work performed.

 

COMPLIANCE WITH FEDERAL COURT ORDER

 

Any regulations under this policy shall be permitted only if permissible under the provisions of any active orders of the United States District Court entered in the desegregation case styled United States of America v. Richland Parish School Board, Civil Action No.66-121 (W.D.La.).
