Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PPGES)

Published: 6/30/2016 9:02 AM

The Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PPGES) was developed in collaboration with Dr. James Stronge for collecting and presenting data to document performance based on well-defined job expectations. The uniform performance standards used in this system provide a balance between structure and flexibility and define common purposes and expectations, thereby guiding effective leadership. The performance standards also provide flexibility, encouraging creativity and individual principal initiative.



The primary purposes of the Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System are to:

  • optimize student learning and growth
  • contribute to successful achievement of the goals and objectives defined in the vision, mission, and goals of the school district
  • provide a basis for leadership improvement through productive principal performance appraisal and professional growth
  • encourage collaboration between the principal and superintendent, and promote self-growth, leadership effectiveness, and improvement of overall job performance
