Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL)

The Office of Leadership Development and School Improvement in collaboration with stakeholders developed a rubric to support principal evaluations. The purpose of the rubric is to inform professional learning experiences for principals that will elevate their professional practice by identifying areas of promise and opportunities for growth within in each standard. The rubric provides a common language and clear expectations of a highly effective, effective, developing, and ineffective school leader.
