Campus Administrator Performance Review (CAPR)

Background

The Campus Administrator Performance Review (CAPR) was developed in response to the state’s development of a new appraisal instrument for principals. The Texas Education Agency developed a new appraisal and through the process, created new standards to be used in appraisal. AISD convened a working group of principals, assistant principals, a teacher, and central administrators to develop a system that reflected the values of the district while maintaining the requirements of the state system. 

The System

CAPR is a multi-measure system that includes three components:Pie

  • Instructional Leadership and Practices (60%)
  • Administrator Performance Review (20%)
  • School-Wide Value-Added (20%)
