Principal Evaluation System
The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) believes that effective school principals are leaders who help ensure that all students reach ambitious targets of performance. That is, principals of traditional or alternative schools and directors of career and technical education (CTE) centers—collectively referred to as “principals”—must ensure a high level of academic success for every student by fostering school and community climates that value effective teaching and student learning. The Mississippi Principal Evaluation System (MPES) is designed to fulfill federal requirements and conform to the Mississippi Standards for School Leaders, endorsed by the Mississippi Board of Education.
