• It’s Time to Host CCE Mid-Year Performance Conversations!

    Host mid-year performance conversations now for the 2020-21 performance year.  Mid-year is a time to formally check in on performance and reflect on LIFT/CCE behaviors, personal development, and goals. 


    Step 1 Schedule time for each of your mid-year conversations.  Complete them by February 12th

    Step 2:  Review and share the CCE Mid-Year Checklist with your team members

    Step 3: Document progress to date and, if applicable, adjust any goals that are no longer relevant.  Add new goals as needed.


    Watch this Performance Conversation Screencast and utilize the following resources

    Keep in mind that mid-year is not the only time to provide feedback; feedback should be ongoing and timely to help team members grow.  Employees/Managers are encouraged to engage in 2-way feedback.  Feel free to use this two way feedback form for mid-year or at any time during the year.

Core Competencies Evaluation (CCE)

  • Denver Public Schools provides a performance-based culture where our mission is to serve our students, and each other. The Core Competencies Evaluation (CCE) was developed to support and align expectations around performance across roles not currently covered under another formalized growth and performance system such as LIFT. CCE competencies were developed in consideration of diverse roles, to define and align the common behaviors that drive district success.

    • The evaluation is based on 5 Competencies with a total of 16 behaviors plus policy compliance
    • The appraisal process utilizes a five-point rating scale
    • Minimum touch points throughout the year:
      1. July - Aug:  Level Setting and Growth Planning
      2. Dec - Feb: Mid-Year Performance Conversations
      3. May - Aug: Year-end Performance Conversations 

    Who is eligible for the Core Competencies Evaluation?

    The Core Competencies Evaluation is the growth and performance system for centrally managed employees who are hourly/non-exempt (vs. salaried/exempt) and are not in a bargaining unit.  It also includes Food Service Workers, Food Service Kitchen Managers, and employees in Campus Safety.
