Abstract

This study was conducted to gain insight into the challenges and issues facing a relatively new (2nd year on the job) principal of a rural high school in relation to effectively evaluating teachers using a state mandated program referred to as Mississippi Statewide Teacher Appraisal Rubric (MSTAR). Okolona High School (OHS), a secondary school, in a problem-laden school district located in Okolona, Mississippi served as the site for the study. The MSTAR acronym refers to the state’s new evaluation program for teachers developed by the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE).
