Certificated Administrative and Supervisory Personnel

The evaluation program for certificated management employees of the County Office of Education is based on the principle of management by objectives and participative management. This process of assessment is designed to maintain the effectiveness of staff.

The evaluation program is intended continuously to reaffirm the correlation between established goals of the Office and the current practices of the sections and units which comprise its divisions.

(c.f. Personnel Commission Rule 4240.7 Performance evaluations - General Policy)

The County Superintendent shall develop objective evaluation guidelines and standards for use in LACOE's evaluation system for certificated administrative and supervisory personnel. Such standards may include those of the California Professional Standards for Education Leaders as well as other standards and criteria developed by the County Board and County Superintendent.

Each certificated administrative and supervisory employee shall be evaluated every other year. However, an employee may be evaluated every five years provided that he/she has been employed by LACOE for at least 10 years, his/her previous evaluation rated him/her as meeting or exceeding standards, and the evaluator and the employee agree to this schedule. Either the evaluator or the employee may withdraw consent for this schedule at any time. (Education Code 44664)

(cf. 4112.24 - Teacher Qualifications Under the No Child Left Behind Act)

(cf. 4116 - Probationary/Permanent Status)

Any certificated administrative and supervisory employee who is new to a position may be evaluated each year for the first two years in the position. Evaluation is a continuous process and may occur between scheduled periods at the request of the employee, his/her supervisor, or the County Superintendent or designee.

Evaluations shall be conducted within the timelines specified in law, Superintendent policy, and administrative regulation. The evaluation process for certificated administrative and supervisory personnel shall be the same as for other certificated instructional personnel, as detailed in AR 4115 - Evaluation/Supervision.

(cf. 4115 - Evaluation/Supervision)

(cf. 4312.1 - Contracts)

Classified Senior Management and Supervisory Employees

Classified senior management and supervisory employees shall be evaluated in accordance with the procedures developed by the County Superintendent or designee and approved by the County Board.

(cf. 4215 - Evaluation/Supervision)

Evaluations shall be used to recognize the exemplary skills and accomplishments of classified senior management and supervisory employees and to identify areas needing improvement. When the evaluation indicates areas needing improvement, the County Superintendent expects such staff to take the initiative to improve their performance and for their supervisors to assist them in obtaining needed job skills.

(cf. 4331 - Staff Development)

The evaluation shall be dated and signed by the classified senior manager or supervisory employee and his/her supervisor. The manager or supervisory employee may respond in writing to the evaluation within a reasonable time after receiving a copy of the evaluation. The response shall be attached to the evaluation and placed in his/her personnel file.
