Goal setting is the first step in the professional appraisal process. Each professional will identify annually an area in which he or she will focus attention during the school year. This should be done by September 15 each school year. A goal conference will be held between each teacher and a building administrator as part of the goal-setting process.

Goals should be directly related to one of the district or building level goals. All goals should be
  • Strategic and specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Results-oriented
  • Time-bound
