"Our district selected VAL-ED as part of our principal evaluation system due to its unparalleled reliability and validity, and for the comprehensive data that it provides. Most importantly, VAL-ED includes feedback from the entire teacher faculty – a response group that is best able to provide insight on their principal’s instructional leadership. Principals receive detailed data on their performance in order to grow and improve as educational leaders, and with the comprehensive VAL-ED data, our district is able to tailor and direct our limited professional development funds for the greatest impact."
