Principal Quality Standards
To support districts in their implementation of Senate Bill 10-191, CDE created a State Model Evaluation System for principals that aligns with State Board of Education rules. Under the model system, principals are evaluated on four Quality Standards (download the Principal Quality Standards overview):
- Half of the evaluation will be based on the four professional practice Quality Standards: organizational leadership through strategic planning, inclusive leadership, instructional leadership, and professionalism. The Quality Standards can be measured using the state-developed rubric that identifies the practices necessary to achieve the standards.
- The other half of a principal’s evaluation will be based on Measures of Student Learning which measures the academic growth of the students in their school. Principals must have a team attribution student growth score and student growth scores that are aligned to their teachers.
