Certificated Administrative and Supervisory Personnel
The Superintendent shall develop objective evaluation guidelines and standards for use in the district'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 Board and 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 the district 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 Superintendent or designee.
Evaluations shall be conducted within the timelines specified in law, Board 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. 4331 - Staff Development)
The evaluation shall be dated and signed by the classified senior manager or supervisory employee and his/her supervisor.
