Superintendent & PPGES Evaluator
 
Two additional roles have been added to CIITS and Infinite Campus to support PPGES. The role of “CIITS District Leader Evaluator” enables the superintendent or his designee to view self-reflections and approve the PGPs of principals in the district; this role is being automatically assigned to all active superintendents as long as they are properly defined in Infinite Campus. The role of “CIITS School Leader Evaluator” enables principals or designees to view self-reflections and approve the PGPs of assistant principals within their school. This role is automatically assigned to all active principals as long as they are properly defined in Infinite Campus.
In the future, the “CIITS District Leader Evaluator” role will also allow users to record site visits of principals. Superintendents, and their designees who have been assigned the “CIITS District Leader Evaluator” role, will receive this ability with no action required by the district.
Both roles are available in Infinite Campus to be assigned to individuals (designees) other than the superintendent and principal that are serving as evaluators of principals and assistant principals.
