Board Self-Evaluation: A Sure Way to Improvement.
Curcio, Joan L.; Manning, Edna M.
Updating School Board Policies, v16 n2 p1-3 Feb 1985
The seven-member board of a Texas school district decided to scrutinize its own performance through a self-evaluation instrument used by each member to evaluate how the board functions, not how each individual functions. Benefits of board self-evaluation include reaffirmation of the board's role, encouragement of board harmony, and identification of problems. The Tuloso-Midway self-evaluation instrument contains nine areas for the board's consideration. They are as follows: (1) board/superintendent relations, (2) board meetings, (3) board/community relations, (4) personal qualities, (5) staff relations, (6) board and instructional programs, (7) board and finance, (8) board inservice, and (9) board leadership. To help other school districts write an evaluation instrument, sample statements from each of the nine areas are provided. (MLF)
