Policy 1630 Discussion
Policy 1630 addresses Evaluation of the Superintendent.
Procedure 1630P adds some implementation detail to the policy.
Evaluation language from the superintendent's contract with the school board states:
The historical practice of the school board has been to review the performance of and provide written feedback to the superintendent in the early spring of the year (by March 1, but generally occurs later) Each year the board indicates that it would make more sense to do the superintendent's evaluation at the end of the year, and prior to goal-setting for the coming year.
The board may wish to consider modifying the practice going forward so that the evaluation of the superintendent happens in July when more metrics from the prior year are available. Additionally, this timing would dovetail nicely into goal-setting for the ensuing year.
This timing would allow the opportunity for the superintendent to work toward improvement in areas of identified deficiencies prior to the April 1 timeline by which the board must take action on the renewal of the contract.
