Teacher/Principal Evaluation System

Annually, Calvert County Public School principals are evaluated on their job performance.

If a principal receives a rating that is below the acceptable level in one or more areas on a five-point scale, a plan is developed by the principal and his or her immediate supervisor to ensure professional development in targeted areas. In addition, the Executive Team provides intensive interventions in problem areas to any principal who receives a rating which is below average. If the principal’s performance does not improve, the principal may be demoted to a vice principal or teacher position. If a principal is demoted, his or her compensation is adjusted to align with the new job assignment.
