The Educational Leadership Policy Standards: ISLLC 2008 is the benchmark for principal effectiveness in Maine schools. To evaluate the professional practice of principals, a school administrative unit must use a principal evaluation model that includes performance standards that align with the ISLLC 2008 standards; supporting descriptions or indicators for each standard as published or endorsed by the creator /sponsor of the standards; and rubrics for each standard that are aligned with the adopted standards and descriptors. At the time this rule was drafted, the creators of the ISLLS 2008 standards had not created rubrics to be used with the standards and descriptors. Therefore, a school administrative unit must either locate or create rubrics for the ISLLC 2008 standards or use a professional practice model that includes a complete set of ISLLC-aligned standards, descriptors and rubrics.

The Department has determined that the following models contain all of the elements necessary to be approved for use as the professional practice element of a PEPG system for principals:

1. National Board Core Propositions for Accomplished Educational Leaders, adopted by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2009, along with the rubrics created by the Maine Schools for Excellence; and
2. The principal professional practice evaluation model created by the Supervision and Evaluation Committee of the Maine Principal's Association, dated September 2013 and posted on the Association's Website at www.mpa.cc;
3. The Marzano School Leader Evaluation Model;
4. The Kim Marshall Principal Evaluation Rubrics.

If a school administrative unit chooses to use a professional practice model other than the models listed above, it must demonstrate to the Department that the model meets the criteria set forth in this section.
