Kentucky is creating a new Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES). The goal of this system is to increase student learning by ensuring that each student is taught by an effective teacher and that each school is led by an effective leader.  This system uses multiple measures to evaluate each principal's effectiveness and serve as a roadmap for the principal's professional growth.
