Truman Principal Completes Work on NASSP Committee Report

Judy Martin-Tafoya, principal at Truman Middle School, recently completed work with a National Association of Secondary School Principals committee that recommended a framework for principal evaluation. The committee recently issued a report entitled, Rethinking Principal Evaluation: A New Paradigm Informed by Research and Practice. 

The NASSP committee worked with another from the National Association of Elementary School Principals to create the report. With the introduction of this research-based framework, the coalition has launched a call to states and districts to adopt a new paradigm including the institution of multiple and meaningful measurement systems of principal and assistant principal effectiveness. 

The report identifies six key domains of school leadership that should be incorporated into principal evaluation systems:

  • Professional growth and learning;
  • Student growth and achievement;
  • School planning and progress;
  • School culture;
  • Professional qualities and instructional leadership; and
  • Stakeholder support and engagement. 

The report was released at a Congressional briefing last month. 

Martin-Tafoya served on the committee for about a year.
