It is important for districts to consider and establish a timeline and schedule of when specific actions and activities should be completed related to the seven-step Evaluation Process. This will help the principal and the school community easily track and complete the requirements of T- PESS.
Below is an example of an estimated timeline for completing the T-PESS process. Consider your calendar (traditional, year-round, etc.) and make sure that all stakeholders involved with the principal's evaluation know, understand, and comply with your established schedule and timeline.
The biggest advantage of a timeline is to ensure fidelity and consistency to a process. The example below may not constitute all actions and activities required by a school district related to its principal's support and evaluation, but provides a starting point.
A set timeline should align with established and required policies and state statutes not be in conflict with other district calendars, schedules, and timelines. Below is a checklist for school districts as they consider the T-PESS process.
