Policy 412.03

Support Staff Appraisal and Professional Development

Appraisal of support staff on their skills, abilities and competence shall be an ongoing process supervised by the superintendent. The goal of the formal appraisal shall be to maintain support staff who meet or exceed the board’s standards of performance, to clarify each support staff member’s role, to ascertain the areas in need of improvement or development, to clarify the immediate priorities of the board, and to develop a positive working relationship among district employees.

The district expects each support staff member, under the guidance of their immediate supervisor, to participate in a program of professional development to maintain and improve performance and proficiency.

It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent or designee to ensure support staff members are formally appraised annually.
