Evaluation of Superintendent Performance: Toward a General Model.
Stufflebeam, Daniel L.
This paper focuses on the evaluation of the on-the-job performance of school district superintendents as they implement school board policy. It draws from the results of a federally supported project on improvement of administrator performance evaluation. Following an overview of the paper's objectives and rationale, part 1 offers a brief history of the superintendency, its duties, competencies, and requirements. Part 2 presents basic concepts for developing a superintendent performance-evaluation model, outlining tasks in the personnel evaluation process. The main models used to evaluate superintendents' performance are assessed in the third part. Part 4 provides a draft of an improved evaluation model based on communication between the board and administrator and on sound conceptualizations of the superintendent's duties. The final part discusses implementing the model within normal school-year calendars. Thirteen figures are included. Contains 51 references. (LMI)
