Principal Composite reports for use in 2018 Principal Evaluations
The Principal Composite Reports provide local education agencies with the employment data for principals and assistant principals that were used to create the principal value-added measure. The reports include composite scores and one-year building scores based on value-added measures from the one or more buildings where the principals and assistant principals served in these roles during the 2016-2017 school year. The electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES) now displays principal composites as the default scores. Download and share the Principal Composite files with Superintendents or their designees who complete evaluations for principals and assistant principals. Visit the Student Growth Measures for Principals page for more information.
