Performance & Evaluation
The Board of Education is responsible for establishing teacher, principal and superintendent guidelines including performance standards and evaluation criteria to assist school divisions in implementing educator evaluation systems.
In 2010, VDOE embarked on a major statewide initiative to revise the uniform performance standards and evaluation criteria for teachers, principals and superintendents.
The Code of Virginia requires that:
- teacher, principal and superintendent evaluations be consistent with the performance objectives (standards) included in the board’s Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Teachers, Administrators and Superintendents
- school boards develop procedures for evaluating instructional personnel that address student academic progress.
Additional evaluation information and technical assistance resources are available.
