Principals and teachers have been actively engaged in fully implementing PGES in 2014-15. The final component of the PGES process was for principals to complete a summative evaluation on teachers for whom it is required this year as outlined in districts’ Certified Evaluation Plan.
The Summative Evaluation Tool for the 2014-15 school year is now available in CIITS/EDS. Supporting resources to help principals complete the summative evaluation process have been created and can be found below.
