 Leader Keys Effectiveness System

Georgia implemented the Leader Keys Effectiveness System (LKES), a common effectiveness system that will allow the state to ensure consistency and comparability across districts, based on a common definition of leader effectiveness. 


The Leader Keys Effectiveness System consists of four components which contribute to an overall Leader Effectiveness Measure (LEM): Leader Assessment on Performance Standards (LAPS), Student Growth, School Climate Survey, and Combination of Additional Data.
