The Superintendent will conduct an ongoing process of evaluating the administrators on their skills, abilities, and competence. At a minimum, the Superintendent will formally evaluate the administrators annually. The goal of the formal evaluation process is to ensure that the educational program for the students is carried out, ensure student learning goals of the District are met, promote growth in effective administrative leadership for the District, clarify the administrator's role as defined by the Board and the Superintendent, ascertain areas in need of improvement, clarify the immediate priorities of the responsibilities listed in the job description, and develop a working relationship between the Superintendent and the administrator.
The Superintendent is responsible for designing an administrator evaluation instrument. The formal evaluation will include written criteria related to the job description. The Superintendent, after receiving input from the administrators, will present the formal evaluation instrument to the Board for approval.
The formal evaluation will also include an opportunity for the administrator and the Superintendent to discuss the written criteria, the past year's performance, and the future areas of growth. The evaluation is completed by the Superintendent, signed by the administrator, and filed in the administrator's personnel file.
It is the responsibility of the Superintendent to conduct a formal evaluation of probationary administrators and non-probationary administrators prior to May 15.
This policy supports and does not preclude the ongoing informal evaluation of the administrator's skills, abilities, and competence.
