According to Act 13, a 13-3 Annual Rating form should be completed once per year on Professional Employees who are considered educational specialists, instructional professionals other than classroom teachers, and supervisory professionals other than supervisors of special education.

Note - For Temporary Professional Employees, a 13-3 Semi Annual rating form should be completed twice per year.  The final score on the Semi Annual rating form will be driven 100% by Observation and Practice domain ratings.
