* All teachers are to be evaluated every 5 years, except for teachers new to the profession, who are evaluated twice to receive “notation” as a permanent teacher, before entering the appraisal cycle of teachers not designated as “new”.

*NTIP has the following elements:

- professional development and training suitable for new teachers
- two performance appraisals (usually in the first year)
- an Annual Learning Plan
- a pre-observation meeting
- classroom observations ( both formal and informal; as frequently as the principal determines is necessary)

Summative Report Form
