    1. Probationary employees must receive an evaluation before the end of their eighteen (18) month probationary period. A probationary employee hired after March 1 of the current school year will be evaluated no later than June of the following school year to allow the administrator appropriate time to assess their performance.
    2. A copy of the evaluation will be maintained in the employee's personnel file.
    3. Interim evaluations will be at the option of the appropriate administrator unless performance is unsatisfactory. In cases of unsatisfactory performance, additional evaluations are expected to be entered into the online evaluation system.

    2. Any employee who receives an unsatisfactory evaluation must be formally evaluated again the following year.
  5. Written Comments
    1. If ratings are unsatisfactory, the evaluator will write specific recommendations for improvement.
