Board Approves Timing Change for Evaluation

Board of Education members tonight (Sept. 15) approved a change in the superintendent’s evaluation cycle designed to ensure they have more data in hand in preparing their final report. The change shifts the board’s determination of whether performance-based compensation goals have been achieved from a Sept. 30 deadline each year to a Jan. 31 deadline.

Board President Anne Rowe said the board agreed last year to similarly shift the timing of the evaluation and this year are placing the change in Superintendent Tom Boasberg’s contract. The timing of some data releases varies by year. This year, for example, the district has received student growth data from state assessments two months later than the previous year.

“It truly is just a timing change to do a more effective job of providing the superintendent with his evaluation,” Rowe said.
