(Mid-Year Progress Conference)
Reviewing goal progress should be an ongoing process when using T-PESS. When done regularly, it
encourages principals to reflect on and refine the leadership practices emphasized to accomplish the
goal. Monitoring current progress also offers the opportunity for the appraiser and the principal to discuss
and clarify leadership practices within the context of the school using real data.
Approximately halfway through the school year, the appraiser will meet individually with each principal to
discuss progress toward the principal’s goals and, if applicable, any proposed adjustments to action
plans as necessary to reach set goals. The MOY conference also includes a review of selected parts of
the rubric as determined most applicable by the appraiser and discussion of any additional support
requested by the principal. In preparation for the MOY conference, the principal may wish to prepare a
brief summary the most current data of any projects or initiatives related to their T-PESS goals.
Supporting and monitoring principal progress is an important component of the professional
development process. The Mid-Year Conference provides the opportunity for principals and appraisers
to formatively take stock of the progress the principal is making on his or her professional goals. Key
information discussed and decisions made during the conference are captured on the MOY Conference
form. Reviewing progress allows for continuing dialogue within the context of the domains, indicators,
principal actions, and the performance goals. Additionally, this conference offers the opportunity to
modify goals should the need arise.
The Mid-Year Progress Form is used to capture the information reviewed and any decisions made as a
result of discussion during the meeting. Following the meeting, the appraiser will complete the form and
share it with the principal for review and signature. As a result of this feedback, both principal and
appraiser should have a clear understanding of the principal’s current level of practice in key areas of
focus and goal progress. Ideally, the MOY conference is an extension of the ongoing dialogue between
principal and appraiser.
Preparation by the appraiser prior to this conference is important. The appraiser should:
• Review the principal’s Self-Assessment and Goal Setting Form.
• Consider the evidence collected through site visits.
• Review and consider the depth and quality of the artifacts submitted or col
During the Mid-Year Progress Conference, the principal and appr
aiser should meet to discuss progress
toward goal attainment:
• Using the Mid-Year Progress Form, the appraiser should indicate whether the principal is
progressing or not progressing toward goal attainment on both the principal practice goal, as well as
the student growth goal set by the principal.
• Include a brief narrative of evidence of progress and/or revise the plan if necessary.
The appraiser should use this form to include any
relevant feedback and comments that will assist the
principal and promote growth in either or both areas.
