Los Angeles Community College District Presidential Evaluation Process, 1976-77.
Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA.
A four-step program for appraising the performance of college presidents in the Los Angeles Community College District is outlined. The steps include: (1) an agreement between the president and the chancellor regarding the content of the president's job and the relative importance of major duties; (2) a definition of the president's goals for each responsibility along with a timetable for their attainment; (3) an agreement between the chancellor and the president on check points for the evaluation of the president's progress and means by which to measure it; and (4) a review by the chancellor and the president of the president's efforts to meet previously established goals. A list of six positive advantages this proposed program entails, and seven recommendations for further appraisal are included. Standards for satisfactory presidential performance are outlined in eleven areas: planning, organization, development or recruitment of administrative personnel, policy formation, establishment of performance standards and review for administrative staff, morale, fiscal control, educational program supervision, community relations, relationship with the chancellor, and presidential self-development. An administrative effectiveness appraisal rating scale completes the document. (LH)
