Teacher evaluation is one piece of the professional improvement process for all faculty and staff.

Teachers have been evaluated using a checklist with additional information provided in a narrative format. Non-tenured teachers are assessed with a formal observation at least three times per year.

Unannounced observations may be used in conjunction with formal observations to increase feedback, to inform annual evaluations, and to guide professional improvement.

All teachers also receive an end-of-year evaluation. Additional observations, informal observations, and walk-through observations may be conducted by the administration as needed.
