Some Recommended Guidelines for the Evaluation of a Community College President.
Henderson, Lee G.
These guidelines are recommended for use by Florida community college boards of trustees in the development of a process for evaluating community college presidents as required by state law. Following introductory material in which "evaluation" and "accountability" are defined, the report outlines seven procedural steps by which the board defines its goals for the college, delineates the functions to be performed by the president toward the achievement of these goals, and determines the competencies, characteristics, and other criteria by which the president's performance can be judged. The report then outlines six evaluation goals and describes the general functions of community college presidents as determined by the Florida State Board of Education. Subjective evaluation criteria are then presented, followed by a discussion of objective evaluation areas and a checklist of basic presidential assignments which can be made to accommodate a common evaluation rating scale. The report concludes with a discussion of the importance of timing in the evaluation process. Although not intended as an evaluation instrument, the report is comprised of easily excerpted materials that can be adapted to serve as simplified evaluation forms. Appendices include a Florida State Board of Education outline of community college presidents' functions and suggested evaluation categories and rating scales. (JP)
