One at One: Do Schools Need to Do CAP Evaluations During COVID-19?

  • One at One: Do Schools Need to Do CAP Evaluations During COVID-19?

Today’s Issue:

Is a school district required to complete an evaluation for a teacher, principal, vice principal, assistant principal and/or other certified staff currently on a Corrective Action Plan (“CAP”) during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Answer:

Chief School Administrators may produce a summative rating for an educator on a Corrective Action Plan (“CAP”), who had been progressing towards an “Effective” or “Highly Effective” rating based on prior observation scores from the 2019-2020 school year and will return to good standing by the issuance of a summative rating. All other educators on a CAP must receive a “Not Evaluated” rating for the 2019-2020 school year.
