Professional growth and evaluation of individual employees is important to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the district. Staff are expected to perform the duties identified in their contracts and/or job descriptions, in addition to any other reasonable responsibilities that may be assigned or directed by their supervisor.
Certificated Teachers and Principals
Evaluations for certificated teachers and principals will be in compliance with the requirements of chapter 28A.405 RCW and applicable agreements negotiated pursuant to chapter 41.59 RCW. The primary purpose of evaluations is to enhance and improve the employee’s performance and to make the employee aware of any performance concerns.
Certificated Support Personnel
“Certificated support personnel” and “certificated support person” mean a certificated employee who provides services to students and who may hold one or more of the education staff associate (ESA) certificates pursuant to WAC 181-79A-140(5).
