Superintendent Evaluation. Keys to School Boardmanship.
Peterson, David; And Others
In recognition of the critical nature of the board's responsibility for evaluating the superintendent, this workshop manual attempts to assist school board members in identifying and defining policies and procedures for effective superintendent evaluation. The learning activities include: (1) lecture; (2) small- and large-group discussion; (3) brainstorming; (4) solitary writing, and (5) role-playing. Two main themes of the workshop are that effective superintendent evaluation should mesh with other board concerns and activities, and that superintendent evaluation clarifies board and superintendent roles. A subtheme of the workshop is how to manage board conflict. The contents of the manual are divided into six sections: (1) Introduction to the Workshop; (2) Planning the Workshop; (3) Presenting the Workshop; (4) Evaluating the Workshop; (5) Resources; and (6) Participant's Workbook. A videotape/film is available to accompany the manual, which is the 17th module in the "Keys to School Boardsmanship" series of developmental workshops designed by the National School Boards Association.
