Teacher Performance Appraisal for Experienced Teacher – APS003
Reviewed/Revised: June 2020
The Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) believes the primary aim of a staff appraisal process is to ensure the professional growth of each of its teachers through recognition of professional achievement and positive contributions to the system. To assist experienced teachers in the successful achievement of their goals the Board is committed to the use of the Performance Appraisal of Experienced Teachers (2007) issued by the Ministry of Education.
Evaluation within the Board is based on the following assumptions:
- Educators within the system are competent
- Educators want to increase their professional effectiveness
- Educators wish to be involved in a co-operative evaluation process as part of a professional learning community
The performance appraisal system for an experienced teacher applies to members of teachers’ bargaining units as defined in Part X.1 of the Education Act and temporary teachers. It is not applicable to teachers new to the profession as of 2006, occasional teachers, continuing education teachers, supervisory officers, administrators, or instructors in teacher-training institutions.
