TEACHERS EVALUATION

There shall be an annual formal evaluation by the principal of the teacher's professional performance.


EVALUATION OF TEACHERS - PHILOSOPHY

We believe that teacher evaluation in the Diocese of Spokane will produce growth for the teacher and result in a better Christian educational environment for each student.

We believe that teacher evaluation shall help the individual teacher to identify areas of his/her accountability in regard to teacher professional standards, shall monitor his/her commitment to Christian values and Catholic traditions, and shall reinforce his/her respect for the dignity of each student.

As a result of evaluation, the teacher will have vivid information about his/her professional performance, the Christian modeling given, and the impact of his/her relationship on the dignity of each individual student.
