LEAD Evaluation Cycle Timeline is Shifting

  • LEAD is shifting from a calendar-year evaluation cycle to a November-October annual cycle to more closely align to the academic year. The 2020-21 academic year will be the first full year of implementation of the new cycle (Nov. 1, 2020-Oct. 31, 2021).  

    To support this shift and fulfill our legal obligations, we will implement a LEAD evaluation short cycle to start Feb. 1, 2020, and end Oct. 31, 2020. This timeline will not affect the Feb. 28 deadline to complete end-of-year LEAD evaluations, which are for the 2019 LEAD year that ended Dec. 31.
