Superintendent evaluation is a unique process that is often neglected but critical in this era of accountability. This invaluable guide provides an overview of the entire process, including: crafting board policy, criteria for good policy, and prototype policy. It identifies the unique challenges posed by the evaluation process and describes a three-tiered model of evaluation. This model is anchored in the professional standards for superintendency established by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), the National School Boards Association (NSBA) Key Work of School Boards, the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards, and the National Technology Standards for School Administrators. Numerous sample forms are included to assist school districts in creating a customized evaluation protocol to enhance performance. Suggestions on next steps for the reader conclude the book and additional resources are described in the annotated bibliography.
This handbook will be of interest to superintendents, school board members, and professionals involved in the development and support of superintendents.
