Spearfish School District 40-2
EVALUATION OF CLASSIFIED STAFF
The development of a competent classified staff is a major objective of the board of education. To fulfill this responsibility, the board of education delegates to the superintendent the responsibility to develop evaluation procedures for all classified personnel.
Classified personnel will receive written evaluations based on the Classified Supervision/Evaluation Report (4510FM). Classified employees will annually receive written evaluations by the supervisor. Additional evaluations may be made as often as needed. Probationary employees will be evaluated at least twice during the probationary period.
The supervision/evaluation process will:
—Be aligned with the mission, vision and belief statement for the district; district staff development expectations and building criteria developed by the principal with input from the employee.
—Be reviewed annually. This will consist of goals, defined time lines for completion of the goals, a plan of action defining specific training, activities, actions or learning that will be accomplished; measurement to determine accomplishment of the goal and a self-appraisal segment.
—The supervisor and the employee will meet for an initial growth plan conference before October 30. The growth plan will be reviewed by the supervisor and the employee as needed during the year. The supervisor and the employee, before June 1, will review and adjust the growth plan for the following year. All supervision/evaluation reports will be filed with the superintendent’s office by June 30.
—Provide for three major areas: 1) work ethic; 2) quality and 3) customer focus. A comment section will also be included.
The supervision/evaluation report will be in writing and will be discussed by the supervisor and the employee. Both parties will sign and date copies of the written document. The results will be placed
in the personnel file of the employee.
