All PA-ETEP portals now have access to the new Principal SLO module. The Principal SLO module was designed according to PDE’s Principal SLO template and process. Starting in the 2015-16 school year, principals are required to complete an SLO. The Elective Rating (SLO) portion of the 82-2 form comprises 20% of the principal’s total earned points and final rating.
Creating a New Principal SLO
To start a new SLO, the principal should access their My Supervision link, locate their SLO section, and click Create New. The system will then prompt the principal to select the appropriate supervisor. Supervisors listed in the drop down include all School District Admin users and any other principal/NTPE supervisor that has the lead designation for that building.
Principal SLO Questions and Process
Once the SLO is created, the principal then clicks Begin and responds to the eight questions as outlined on PDE’s Principal SLO template. Once satisfied with their responses, the principal submits their SLO to their supervisor for approval. Once approved, the principal can return to their SLO and provide updates as needed throughout the school year. When a final update is submitted by the principal, the supervisor can then enter a final rating. Final ratings (Failing, Needs Improvement, Proficient, Distinguished) will then appear in Elective Rating section of the 82-2 form created for that school year.
