Evaluation of the Superintendent

Board Policy 2123
The Governing Board believes that an annual evaluation of the Superintendent's performance serves to measure the district's progress toward established goals and objectives and strengthens working relationships between the Superintendent and the Board. Evaluations should provide commendations in areas of strength and recommendations for improving effectiveness, thus clarifying the Superintendent's role and giving the Board and Superintendent an opportunity to jointly identify priorities among the Superintendent's many responsibilities. Evaluations also should help the Board to set reasonable criteria for salary increases and/or contract extension.    
Performance Objectives                                     
The Board and Superintendent shall annually agree upon a limited number of objectives which
shall be used to evaluate the Superintendent's performance.  These objectives shall reflect
established goals and needs of the district with regard to the educational program, personnel,
operations, management, community relations, Board-Superintendent relations, and professional
leadership.  For each objective, the Board and Superintendent shall identify in writing the 
activities to be performed, expected results and timelines, and resources or constraints which
may affect achievement.                                                              
(cf. 2122 - Superintendent of Schools:  Responsibilities and Duties)                                              
Evaluation Process
Once a year, each Board member shall independently rate the Superintendent's performance in
each performance objective. The Board shall examine all Board members' ratings and reach a consensus upon the evaluation of each performance objective. The Board president or designee shall then develop a single evaluation representing the Board's collective judgment and provide a copy to the Superintendent.
The Board shall meet in closed session with the Superintendent to discuss the evaluation.  The
Superintendent and Board members shall agree upon and sign an evaluation summary.                
(cf. 9321 - Closed Session Purposes and Agendas) 
The Superintendent and Board president shall examine dates specified in the Superintendent's
contract and shall establish an appropriate schedule for the annual evaluation process and annual
setting of performance objectives.
(cf. 2121 - Superintendent's Contract)                      
Additional evaluations may be arranged at any time during the year at the request of either the
Board or the Superintendent.
