This page is currently undergoing updates to reflect the changes established in Senate Bill 1 (2017). Senate Bill 1, (effective immediately due to an emergency clause) brings significant change to Kentucky’s Professional Growth and Effectiveness System. It requires districts to implement a personnel evaluation system aligned to a statewide framework that promotes continuous professional growth and development of skills needed to be a highly effective teacher or administrator. If you have questions related to Principal Site Visits, please contact Jim Freeman at (502) 564-1479.

Site visits are one source of evidence that is included when determining an administrator's Overall Professional Practice Rating. 

​School site visits applied in a variety of settings, provide information on a wide range of contributions made by principals. School site visits may range from watching how a principal interacts with others to observing programs and shadowing the administrator. 

Suggested guiding questions a superintendent may want to address are included on the Site Visit Form.
