Principal Performance Review
- After intensive negotiations in 2007, CSA and the Department of Education reached an agreement on a new Principal Performance Review (PPR).
- As of spring 2007, our new contract provided for a labor management committee to redesign the PPR to be aligned with the DoE's new accountability initiatives. The DoE initially insisted that the school progress report dominate the PPR. In extended negotiations, CSA succeeded in developing an evaluation instrument that fairly balances the data of the progress report with goals and objectives and other areas of evaluation.
- The PPR has four components that encompass the many aspects of a principal's leadership in a school. Each part has a percentage assigned to it and the total is converted to a ratio. The principal is expected to meet with his/her superintendent in early fall to develop and agree on five major goals and some objectives for each goal. These goals should be agreed upon after a review of the school's progress report, quality review and the CEP to help focus and prioritize the principal's work for this school year. The other portions of the rating include the school progress report, quality review and compliance reports. The overall PPR rating is the total of the four components.
- The other major change is that the overall rating has five categories: Substantially Exceeds; Exceeds; Meets; Partially Meets; Does Not Meet.
