Evaluation of licensed personnel on their skills, abilities, and competence is an ongoing process supervised by the building principals and conducted by approved evaluators.
The licensed personnel evaluation system used by the Linn-Mar Community School District is included in the district’s performance evaluation system.
The goal of the formal evaluation of licensed personnel, other than administrators, but including extra-curricular personnel, is to improve the educational program, to maintain licensed personnel who meet or exceed the board's standards of performance, to clarify the licensed employee's role, to ascertain the areas in need of improvement, to clarify the immediate priorities of the board, to develop a working relationship between the administrators and other personnel, and to maintain ethical practice and conduct.
The superintendent [or designee] will follow the requirements stated in the master agreement between personnel in the licensed collective bargaining unit and the school board regarding the evaluation of such personnel.
This policy supports and does not preclude the ongoing informal evaluation of the licensed employee’s skills, abilities, and competence.
It is the responsibility of the superintendent [or designee] to ensure licensed personnel who are not covered by the master agreement are evaluated annually.
