Policy # 8250

The Board of Education recognizes that education is a continuous process that cannot be satisfactorily achieved without the coordination and cooperation of all components of the system. To achieve the highest quality of education on all levels, a critical appraisal of the program as it operates in each school and at each level is essential. The Superintendent of Schools shall develop standards and procedures for the evaluation of instructional programs.


         The purposes of evaluation of instruction are to:


         a)      Indicate instructional strengths and weaknesses;


         b)      Provide information needed for advance planning;


         c)      Provide data for public information;


         d)      Show the relationship between achievement and the school system's stated goals; and


         e)      Check on the suitability of the instructional program in terms of community requirements.


The Board of Education expects staff members to maintain a continual program of evaluation at every level to determine the extent of progress toward the schools' objectives. The Board of Education will periodically request the Superintendent to present factual information that it considers necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of the School System.
