Guidelines for Evaluating a Superintendent (To Assist School Board Members in Planning and in Evaluation).
California School Boards Association, Sacramento.
This publication is intended to aid local school board members in establishing procedures and priorities for evaluating the performance of their district superintendent. Except for a brief introductory section, the entire publication consists of a model comprehensive evaluation instrument. The evaluation model is organized in two main sections, one devoted to assessing the status of the school district and the other concerned with personal evaluation of the superintendent. Section 1 offers for consideration approximately 150 criteria dealing with the following topics: administrative organization of the school district, curriculum and instruction, responsiveness to learners' needs and aspirations, employee and pupil personnel services, personnel matters, school plant planning and management, business and financial management, community relationships, and administration of the district. Section 2 contains approximately 50 criteria concerned with superintendent-board relationships, superintendent-staff relationships, superintendent-community relationships, educational leadership, business and financial management, and personal qualities of the superintendent.
