“It was very helpful for us to meet and discuss what was important in an evaluation process.”
-Lamoille South Supervisory Union Board Member
The evaluation of the Superintendent of Schools is vital to an effective school organization. The School Board is responsible for defining organizational outcomes that are clearly and explicitly stated in order to; (1) ensure the Superintendent understands what is expected of her/him; and (2) ensure the School Board understands what to expect of the Superintendent. These two points characterize a working relationship with mutual accountability.
The Supervisory Union/Supervisory District Board has the authority and responsibility to evaluate the Superintendent. (16 VSA sect. 241), and is responsible for an evaluation process that is objective, targeted, and based on information from sources that are qualified to provide feedback.
