Principals and teachers have been actively engaged in fully implementing PGES in 2014-15. The final component of the PGES process is 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 expected to be available in CIITS/EDS in mid-February. Supporting resources to help principals complete the summative evaluation process are being created, however, the process will not change much from last year. The resources below, although produced in 2013-14, will give a good idea of what to expect.
