Performance Assessment

Assessing Performance
This process allows us to reflect upon and comment on what has been accomplished in the prior year. This information should include those contributions and efforts that have contributed to achieving positive results, including handling our day-to-day work. It should also include the issues that presented specific challenges or opportunities for growth and development.

As we think about our accomplishments and challenges, it is equally important to reflect upon how the work was done.  The Performance Assessment Process provides the opportunity to consider how working in a mission informed and core values focused way has assisted in achieving positive results, or may be helpful in supporting the development and growth for the individual in the future.

The 2023 performance assessment process for staff and administrators begins on Monday, June 5th. Form(s) and performance management guidebooks can be found on ECHO
