Evaluation of Chief Executive Officers in Canadian School Boards. CEA Information Note.
Canadian Education Association, Toronto (Ontario).
The Canadian Education Association (CEA) examined the procedures Canadian School Boards use to evaluate their chief executive officers. In March 1989, CEA sent a questionnaire to superintendents and directors of education of the school boards that subscribe to the CEA Information Service, as well as to others. Of the 123 questionnaires sent, 81 responses were received, and of these, 21 indicated that they did not evaluate their CEOs even informally. Two-thirds of the CEOs (54) had contracts, and of these, 46 were evaluated by their boards. Fewer than one-third of the responding school boards had a formal evaluation form. There are three main levels of evaluation: (1) formal evaluation using a standard evaluation instrument, often with a quantifiable rating scale; (2) formal evaluation using descriptive guides but without a standard model or set form; and (3) informal evaluation, using neither guides nor models. A list of respondents, data tables, and sample evaluation models are appended. (SI)
