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 of four touch points throughout the year:
      1. July - Sept: Level Setting and Growth Planning
      2. Dec - Jan: Mid-Year Performance Conversations
      3. June – 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 a pilot of school based bargaining unit employees in Campus Safety and at 12 schools (Cole, CEC Middle College, CLA, DCIS at Ford, Denver Green School, Dora Moore, Green Valley, Gust, Isabella Bird, McGlone, Montclair & Oakland.)


Year-End is Underway!

  • Next Steps:

    1. Complete your self-appraisal.  The self-appraisal is your opportunity to reflect on your achievements and document the impact of your results. The goal of your self-appraisal is to thoughtfully consider the whole of your performance over the year and to create a clear picture of your performance for your manager's consideration.
    2. Consider requesting feedback from your peers, colleagues and customers through the Other Rater process in Infor HR. Feedback from other raters gives you and your manager a more well rounded view of your performance.
    3. Complete your self-appraisal by May 14th.   Leaders may adjust deadlines to support the scheduling needs of the team, so verify the deadline with your manager.
