Board and Superintendent Goals

The Board shall evaluate, in writing, the performance of District Superintendent at least once a year during the term of this Contract, no later than June 30th of each year, unless the parties mutually agree in writing on another date for the annual evaluation. The annual performance assessment shall be conducted in an executive session limited to members of the Board of School Directors and the District Superintendent. An evaluation instrument and method mutually agreed upon in writing by the Board and the District Superintendent shall be utilized for the annual performance assessment. Provided, however, that any evaluation instrument and method selected shall require the Board of School Directors to speak in one voice as an entire Board rather than “averaging” the feedback of each member regarding each aspect of the evaluation. In the event the Board consensus determines that the performance of the District Superintendent is unsatisfactory in any respect, it shall describe in writing, in reasonable detail, the specific instances of unsatisfactory performance. A copy of the written evaluation shall be delivered to the District Superintendent. The District Superintendent shall have the right to make a written response to the evaluation. The Board’s evaluations and the District Superintendent’s response(s) shall be totally private and in no manner become public knowledge or conversation, except as otherwise expressly required by state or federal law. The District Superintendent’s performance shall be deemed satisfactory and the District Superintendent shall not be subject to discipline, discharge or termination on the basis of neglect of duty or incompetency in any year when a formal performance assessment is not completed in accordance with this Contract.

The performance assessment shall be used for the following purposes:

  1. To strengthen the working relationship between the Board and the District Superintendent and to clarify for the District Superintendent and individual members of the Board of School Directors the responsibilities the Board relies on the District Superintendent to fulfill;
  2. To discuss and establish goals and/or objective performance standards for the ensuing year; and
  3. To establish the basis for pos sible incremental adjustments in the annual salary rate for the District Superintendent.

Based on the Superintendent's Entry Plan and Survey Data, four areas have emerged:

Performance Area #1:  Communication and Community Feedback - Superintendent will ensure all constituent groups are well informed regarding strategic goals through one call, social media, town meetings, employee meetings, board highlights, mobile technology, website and newsletters.

Performance Area #2: Leadership for Learning - Superintendent will provide guidance, direction, and support for the improvement of student achievement for all buildings through vision setting and performance indicators.

Performance Area #3: Fiscal Leadership and Management - Superintendent will provide the board and public with a financial approach that will maximize student achievement, provide alternative revenue streams and balance a budget without using fund balance.

Performance Area #4: Building Facilities - Superintendent will implement a short and long range plan for updating facilities, reducing overall operating costs and providing resources to support a sustainable educational facility.

Board Meetings

The School Board meets regularly at 6:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month and at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of each month at the District Office Administrative Board Room. The only exception is June when the board will meet on the fourth Monday at 7:00 p.m.

Each December the Board will reorganize and vote on meeting dates.
