Candoli, Carl; And Others
This document summarizes a book that provided a detailed synthesis of current thinking, research, and practice in superintendent performance evaluation. It also outlines a new evaluation model designed to overcome the weaknesses of existing models while building on their strengths. The focus is on the evaluation of on-the-job performance of school district superintendents as they implement school board policy. The model consists of the following categories--context evaluation, input evaluation, process evaluation, and product evaluation. It assesses the following superintendent duties: (1) promote and support student growth and development; (2) honor diversity and promote equal opportunity; (3) foster a positive school climate; (4) provide leadership in school-improvement efforts; (5) stimulate, focus, and support improvement of classroom instruction; (6) lead and manage personnel effectively; (7) manage administrative, fiscal, and facilities functions effectively; (8) assure/provide a safe, orderly environment; (9) foster effective school-community relations; (10) embody and promote professionalism; and (11) relate effectively to the school board. Guidelines are offered for implementing the model within the normal calendar year. Five figures are included. (LMI)
