The Eatontown Public School district’s policy regarding the evaluation of principals sets the guidelines for tenured and non-tenured administrators. The Board is committed to providing principals with adequate resources, professional development, and the time needed for improvement in job performance.
The district policy requires that a tenure administrator be evaluated at least once a year and non-tenured administrators three times a year. All administrators receive a summative report, as part of their “Professional Growth Plan.”
The criteria for evaluation of tenured administrators are: Performance Areas of Strength, Recommended Areas of Growth, Summary of Pupil Progress Indicators, and Data Provided by Employee. This evaluation is in narrative form.
Non-tenured administrators are evaluated using a rating system: Satisfactory, Needs Improvement, Unsatisfactory, In-Progress. There is no single overall rating. The categories of evaluation are: General, Personnel, Fiscal Responsibility, Building & Grounds, Professional Growth Plan, Special Projects, Public Relations, Legal & Legislative, Transportation and Health & Welfare.
The Eatontown Public School District uses its observation and summative evaluations to plan professional growth opportunities, determine continued employment and placement and to develop a Professional Growth Plan for each administrator.
The evaluation for tenured and non-tenured administrators differs in frequency tenured – once a year and non-tenured three times a year. Additionally, non-tenured evaluations are a checklist with ratings for each indicator.
The evaluation of administrators is aligned with our district mission to provide students with qualified educational leaders who provide a school that will enable students to reach high academic achievement. Their evaluation also supports the “democratic ideas and values’ as stated in the district’s philosophy.
There are less than 10 principals in the district. No data can be provided.
