Principal and VP/AP Evaluation: Overview

Executive Order 175 waived the mSGP portion of summative ratings for qualifying teachers, Principals, APs and VPs due to the lack of a state test from SY 19-20. Therefor, information on this page regarding mSGP and summative ratings does not apply for the 2020-21 school year.

SGP is a measure of how much a student improves his or her state test performance from one year to the next compared to students across the state with a similar score history.

Principal evaluation consists of two primary components:

  • Principal Practice (measured using approved practice instruments) and
  • Student Achievement (measured using teacher Student Growth Objectives, Administrator Goals, and for qualifying leaders, a median Student Growth Percentile).
