Supporting Services Professional Growth System - Evaluations

Our evaluation process is designed to measure job performance, promote professional development, and maximize the quality of our workforce. The Supporting Services Professional Growth System (SSPGS) staff is dedicated to helping schools and offices develop the most successful teams, who contribute to the success of all students. We offer multiple evaluator trainings throughout the year for administrators and supervisory support professionals such as building service managers, building service assistant managers, cafeteria managers, security team leaders, and office based supervisors. Below, you will find links to some of the tools we have designed to assist you with the evaluation process.
