2014-15 Principal Practice Observation Tool (DOE)
"The Principal Practice Observation Tool was created as an evidence gathering tool to be used by evaluators during Principal Practice Observations as part of the Principal Performance Review. The evidence gathered by this tool will be applied to the Quality Review rubric. The tool provides examples and questions directly connected to leadership practices embedded in each indicator of the Quality Review rubric, allowing strong leadership practices to be recognized in the context of any school. The questions embedded in the tool can also serve as a reflection exercise for principals."
