SPGES Evaluation Process

Published: 4/28/2017 12:53 PM

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 the Superintendent Evaluation Process, please contact Todd Davis at (502) 564-1479.


​The SPGES was developed during the 2013-14 school year by members of the Superintendent PGES Steering Committee that includes Kentucky school superintendents, representatives from the Kentucky Association of School Superintendents (KASS), Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA), the Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA), the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), the Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB), as well as local school board members.  Click here for a full list of steering committee members.

During the 2014-15 school year, all superintendents and local boards of education will participate in a pilot of the system. Districts were given the option to use the system created by the Superintendent PGES Steering Committee or develop their own local system, aligned to the steering committee rubric and approved by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE).

Feedback will be collected and the Superintendent PGES will be refined during the coming years.

In the 2015-16 school year, the system will be fully implemented statewide.

The Kentucky Department of Education is working with KASS and KASA on the development of the superintendent support materials and training.  KDE also is collaborating with KSBA on board member training for the 2014-15 school year.

The prezi below describes the Superintendent PGES evaluation process as recommended by the steering committee.  For more information about the superintendent standards, please review the Superintendent Leadership Plan.
