B.) Evaluations shall be made by the Superintendent;
C.) Results of the evaluations shall be put in writing and shall be discussed with the administrator;
D.) The administrator being evaluated will have the right to attach a memorandum to the written evaluation; and
E.) Results of all evaluations shall be kept in confidential personnel files maintained at the Superintendent’s office.
In accordance with Maine’s Educator Effectiveness law (20-A MRSA § 13701-13706), by the end of the 2015-2016 school year, RSU #74 will have developed and piloted a performance evaluation and growth system (PEPG), consistent with the requirements of law and applicable Department of Education rules, for full implementation in the 2016-2017 school year.
This system, which will apply to the evaluation and growth of school principals, must be approved by the
RSU #74 Board.
