Principal Effectiveness:
State-Recommended Model

 

Updated: Dec. 16, 2013


Overview
Building on previous work, South Dakota’s Commission on Teaching and Learning has developed principal standards and a model system for evaluating principals that includes a focus on both professional practices and student growth. The resources to the right provide an overview of that recommended system.

Implementation
For SY 2014-15, school districts have the following options regarding implementation of principal effectiveness systems:

1) Full implementation of the state-recommended principal evaluation system

2) Planning/capacity building for full implementation in SY 2015-16

Districts that choose to use SY 2014-15 as a planning, training and capacity building year will be required to submit a plan demonstrating how the district will build capacity and train staff during SY 2014-15, in order to be fully implementing by the start of SY 2015-16. The plan will specifically need to address the use of both professional practices and student learning objectives.



State-Provided PD and Technical Assistance
The South Dakota Department of Education will provide professional development and technical assistance to support districts as they work to implement teacher and principal effectiveness systems. Click here for schedule of planned opportunities beginning January 2014.
