Required Annual Assessment of Principal by SLT Members

State Educational Law and Chancellor's Regulation A-655 require an annual assessment of the principal to be submitted to the Superintendent by SLT members.The form assesses the degree an effective shared decision making relationship was established with the SLT by the principal.You can read about this requirement in Section II.,B2, of Chancellor's Regulation A-655 (see link on page).There is a sample evaluation form in Appendix 3 of A-655.

In addition,you do not have to sign the CEP if you feel there was not a shared decision making process. You can attach your reason for not signing to the CEP.
Take your responsibilities seriously. Do not sign a CEP if there was no shared decision making in its development and alignment of the budget.

The principal at my high school brought this year's CEP to our Dec. 15 meeting. We had 45 minutes of discussion and then were asked to sign. I was not happy with Goal #1 or Goal #5, plus I was not happy with the fact that we had so little time to study the document. So I did not sign. what happens next? I gave the principal a written statement to send in lieu of my signature.
Also, I did not sign off on a Homework Policy for the school, another matter for discussion. There was one section on Long-Term Assignments that did not belong in that policy document. Thus, we did not reach consensus. The principal declared that our role was "advisory" and issued the policy even though consensus was not reached. What next?
