Effective January 2016 Support Staff will be evaluated using a new set of forms. The forms were developed collaboratively with building Administrators and Supervisors and shared with Union leaders for feedback. The goals of the new forms are as follows:
Implement a paperless performance evaluation system.
Use key performance indicators common to all Support Staff.
Reduce, simplify, and standardize the performance indicators and rating scale.
Make the primary purpose of evaluation about employee development.
The major changes you will see are as follows:
Evaluations will be completed through an online system called Talent Ed. It is the same system currently being used for Teacher evaluations.
The rating scale has been reduced from four levels (or in some cases 5 levels) of performance to three levels:
Does not meet expectations
For all Support Staff, the first three evaluation categories are the same:
Communication and Relationships
Quality of Work
The fourth category is job-specific
There is also a self-evaluation and goal-setting option (not required). The intent is to open communication between evaluators and staff regarding goals and performance.
If you are on cycle for evaluation this school year (2015/16) you should have received a link from Talent Ed with your User name and Password. Talent Ed is the on-line system we will use for Evaluations starting January 2016 for Support Staff (already in place for certified staff starting 2014/15).
If you are NOT on cycle for evaluation this school year, you will NOT receive a link to Talent Ed at this time.
