Professional Growth and Effectiveness System for Principals (PPGES)

Published: 4/28/2017 12:54 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 Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES) for Principals, please contact Jim Freeman at (502) 564-1479.
The principal plays dual roles in this system as one who is evaluated (PPGES) and one who evaluates (TPGES/OPGES). Because of these roles, the principal PGES pages contain information, links, and resources for both the principal and teacher effectiveness systems.
  • provide a basis for leadership improvement through productive principal performance appraisal and professional growth
  • encourage collaboration between the principal and superintendent
  • promote self-growth, leadership effectiveness, and improvement of the principal’s overall job performance
