Code No. 411.7
CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE EVALUATION
Evaluation of classified employees on their skills, abilities, and competence will be an ongoing process supervised by the superintendent. The goal of the formal evaluation of classified employees will be to maintain classified employees who meet or exceed the board's standards of performance, to clarify each classified employee's role, to ascertain the areas in need of improvement, to clarify the immediate priorities of the board, and to develop a working relationship between the administrators and other employees.
It is the responsibility of the superintendent to ensure classified employees are formally evaluated annually. New and probationary classified employees are formally evaluated at least once a year.
NOTE: This policy states that new and probationary employees will be formally evaluated at least twice a year. This is not a legal requirement but is a recommended practice. School districts with another practice should reflect that in the last sentence of the second paragraph.
