Summary Evaluations were due on February 1 for:
FT faculty who are in their first through sixth year of FT employment,
FT Professional Staff in their 1st year of employment, and
Tenured faculty in their evaluation year (Not evaluated in the year tenure is received and evaluated every 3rd year from last evaluation).
Unit members are required to sign the Summary Evaluation acknowledging that the unit member has read and received a copy of the evaluation. Signing the Summary Evaluation does not mean that the unit member agrees with the evaluation. Unit members have the right to request the reasons for the evaluation. Unit members have seven working days to respond to the evaluation and have the right to file a grievance.
Professional staff may request a post evaluation meeting to discuss the evaluation. If requested, the supervisor shall meet and confer with the professional staff unit member within 14 days of the evaluation.

RATINGS – The only component in the summary evaluation process that has a rating is the student evaluation component (excellent, very good, good, fair, poor, or very poor). There are no overall ratings for any of the components on the summary evaluation and there is no overall performance rating. The evaluator must state “unsatisfactory” if a component or the overall performance is unsatisfactory. Overall ratings such as satisfactory, excellent, very satisfactory, good, etc. for any component or for the overall performance are not acceptable and are in violation of the contract and a 1986 arbitration decision. If a unit member is “other than unsatisfactory”, then the evaluator’s comments should be in the form of a narrative. The evaluator may use adjectives in the narrative, but may not, for example, state the overall classroom observation was satisfactory, or very satisfactory, or good, or excellent. The same is true for the professional staff summary evaluation and its components.
