Code No. 301.4 Superintendent of Schools – Evaluation

Administration

Series 300

Code No. 301.4

Policy Title:  Superintendent of Schools – Evaluation

 

The board will conduct an ongoing evaluation of the superintendent on the superintendent’s skills, abilities, and competence.  Annually, the board will formally evaluate the superintendent.  The goal of the superintendent’s formal evaluation is to ensure the education program for the students is carried out, promote growth in effective administrative leadership, clarify the superintendent’s role, clarify the immediate priorities of the board, and develop a working relationship between the board and the superintendent.

The formal evaluation will be based on the Iowa Standards for School Leaders:

  1. The evaluation criteria shall be in writing, clearly stated and mutually agreed upon by the board and the superintendent. The criteria will be related to the job description and the school district’s goals.
  2. The evaluation process will be conducted annually at a time agreed upon.
  3. The superintendent shall conduct a self-evaluation prior to discussing the board’s evaluation, and the board as a whole shall discuss their evaluation with the superintendent.
  4. The board may discuss their evaluation of the superintendent. This discussion may take place in closed session upon a request from the superintendent.
  5. A suggested evaluation instrument is attached and made part of this policy.

 

This policy supports and does not preclude the ongoing informal evaluation of the superintendent’s skills, abilities and competence.
