The School Board, upon the recommendation of the Superintendent, employs Building Principals as the chief administrators and instructional leaders of their assigned schools.

Each Building Principal and Assistant Principal shall complete state law requirements to be a prequalified evaluator before conducting an evaluation of a teacher or assistant principal.

The Superintendent or designee shall implement an evaluation plan for Principals and Assistant Principals that complies with Section 24A-15 of the School Code and relevant Illinois State Board of Education rules.
