Description of the Principal Evaluation System
The School District of the Barnegat's certified principals are evaluated in accordance with state laws and regulations, as well as Board policy and regulations. Principal evaluations reference the New Jersey Professional Standards for School Leaders and contain the following evidence: Portfolio/work samples, school climate indicators, self-leadership assessment/evaluation, school/community communications, student performance/achievement outcomes, documented, completed teacher evaluations, goal setting, progress and completion reporting.
Evaluations are narrative and include opportunities for pre and post conferencing. The narrative includes comments, commendations, recommendations, goals-progress and completion, and a summative statement. Performance evaluation is informed through the written paragraphs and includes specific, as well as summative performance evaluation. Tenured Principals are evaluated formally once a year while non tenured principals are evaluated three times a year.
Results inform the following areas: professional development, individual Professional Growth Plans, tenure decisions, recommendation for continued employment, selection of specific roles or duties, and principal placements.
The School District of the Barnegat's believes that the evaluation of a principal is a serious and complex matter. There are multiple issues that enter into the evaluation process. Some of the criteria such as student discipline records and test scores are much more tangible than other items which include climate and culture in the school, along with staff and student morale. Since the Barnegat's schools typically perform well by standardized measures, we have not included test scores or similar assessments in the evaluation process. If there was a significant drop in student achievement, then we would revisit that issue. In the meantime, the public should be assured that we challenge ourselves by setting new goals on an annual basis and making every effort to ensure that all students in the system are successful.

Description of the Teacher Evaluation System

The School District of the Barnegat's employs an evaluation model based on Charlotte Danielson's Teacher Evaluation Framework. The framework identifies four critical domains: Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction and Professional Responsibilities of effective teaching. Using a range of feedback mechanisms, the district evaluates each educator based on performance within these domains. Said mechanisms include classroom observations, teacher and student work samples, teacher self-reflections, pre and post conferencing, and other relevant artifacts. Tenured teachers are evaluated twice a year while non tenured teachers are evaluated four times a year. Tenured teachers have the option to engage in teaching analysis through video lesson and peer observations, while non tenured teachers must engage in teaching analysis through video lesson and complete peer observations. The multiples measures of assessment enable the district to assemble a range of evidence upon which to make decisions about efficacy, and to ensure that student learning is at the center of those decisions.
Since the Barnegat schools typically perform well by standardized measures, we have not included test scores or similar assessments in the evaluation process. If there was a significant drop in student achievement, then we would revisit that issue. In the meantime, the public should be assured that we challenge ourselves by setting new goals on an annual basis and are making every effort to ensure that all students in the system are successful.
