Credible, fair and professional evaluations of licensed personnel depend on high quality, effective training for evaluators that are consistent across the state. As required in state law, all performance evaluations must be conducted by an individual who has completed a training in evaluation skills that has been approved by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). As such, any person who conducts an evaluation of school licensed personnel must hold a principal or administrator license or complete a state approved evaluation training program.
