Superintendent Evaluation. ERIC Digest Series Number EA 42.
While a superintendent evaluation offers the school board protection from lawsuits and criticism from both terminated superintendents and constituents angered over the superintendent's performance and salary, it also offers encouraging praise, instructive criticism, and suggestions for overcoming shortcomings and problems. The performance appraisal system, a useful and flexible tool for superintendent evaluation, requires the board members--with the superintendent's cooperation--to identify and prioritize the superintendent's major goals before the year begins. Additionally, objectives, like goals, must be established before the evaluation period begins. The final evaluation should be in written form and should focus on how effectively the superintendent accomplished the goals and objectives agreed upon. (10 references) (KM)
