PRINCIPAL EVALUATION STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS
Minnesota’s principal evaluation requirements are contained in Minnesota Statutes, section 123B.147.
The purpose of the evaluation is to enhance a principal's leadership skills and support and improve teaching practices, school performance, and student achievement. Although the working group was directed to develop a model for evaluation, statute clearly indicates that it is the responsibility of a district to develop and implement a performance-based system for annually evaluating school principals assigned to supervise a school building within the district.
The evaluation must be designed to improve teaching and learning by supporting the principal in shaping the school's professional environment and developing teacher quality, performance, and effectiveness.
