  1. Yes, only individuals who have received training and support in evaluation skills may evaluate certificated employees. IC 20-28-11.5-5 (b) “An individual may evaluate a certificated employee only if the individual has received training and support in evaluation skills.”

    The evaluator may be an administrator; or in some cases a teacher who has 1) clearly demonstrated a record of effective teaching over several years; (2) is approved by the principal as qualified to evaluate under the plan; and (3) conducts staff performance evaluations as a significant part of teacher’s responsibilities.

    Additionally as allowed by IC 20-28-11.5-5 “The superintendent or equivalent authority, for a school corporation that does not have a superintendent, may provide for evaluations to be conducted by an external provider.”
