                 Annual Performance Evaluation for all Employees:

                          This document is completed for all employees on the employee's anniversary
                           date or during the month of __________________. This is a comprehensive
                           evaluation and shall be used by the department manager/supervisor and the
                           employee to evaluate each area of the job, suggest improvements, set goals
                           and objectives for the future and measure job performance for the time period
                           stated. This performance evaluation is criteria based.

        Methods and time frames for any identified areas of performance requiring improvement
         are mutually agreed upon by the staff member and evaluator. If the staff member is unable
         or unwilling to improve, the individual’s job assignment may be modified, or other
         appropriate action may result; these actions may range from remedial training up to and
         including termination.

        Following discussion of the performance evaluations with the staff member, and after the
         staff member has been provided the opportunity to document any comments and has
         signed the evaluation, performance evaluations are filed in each employee’s personnel file.
