Professional Growth and Effectiveness System for Principals (PPGES)

Published: 9/29/2016 2:06 PM

The vision for the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System is to have every student taught by an effective teacher and every school led by an effective principal.  The goal is to create a fair and equitable system to measure teacher and leader effectiveness and act as a catalyst for professional growth.  The principal plays a dual role in this system, one who is evaluated (PPGES) and evaluator of educators (TPGES/OPGES).  It is because of this duality that the principal pages will contain information, links, and resources for both the principal and teacher effectiveness systems



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
