The superintendent oversees or manages all aspects of the school division. He or she is directly responsible for the daily activities, functioning and outcomes. He or she is directly accountable to the school board. Thus, the school board and superintendent relationship must be very sound, strong and trusting. The superintendent's evaluation instrument must be direct, concise, and objectively identify the performance indicators/standards to which he or she will be evaluated. The performance standards serve as the foundation of the evaluation instrument. This book provides Board members and superintendents the tools to develop a sound evaluation system that is fair and drives accountability. -- Barbara Haywood, former Virginia School Boards Association president and current York School Board member With the nation's need for great Superintendents higher than ever before, the authors deliver the missing link- a thoughtful research-based approach to effective Superintendent evaluation. This book is a must have road map for any high performing school board and school district! -- Scott Brabrand, superintendent, Fairfax County Public Schools We have all heard it before-what gets monitored gets done. What if those doing the monitoring aren't sure what they are looking for or have difficulty with providing meaningful feedback that leads to improvement? Too often, that is the case for those tasked with evaluating the school superintendent. The role of the superintendent is one that is complex, multi-faceted, and often misunderstood; presenting a significant challenge for evaluators. In this book, the authors have effectively laid out the groundwork for school boards everywhere who wish to establish a fair, unbiased, authentic evaluation process that will provide superintendents with the necessary feedback to master their craft and lead their school district to new levels of success! -- Jared A. Cotton, EdD, superintendent, Chesapeake City Schools; Virginia Superintendent of the Year
