Board hires architect for new central office

Gets update on new educator evaluation system



Thomas is participating in the pilot superintendent evaluation program.

The old superintendent evaluation system was very “subjective,” Isaacs said. Each board member was required to fill out a form, rank the superintendent on a scale in different areas, and send the forms to the district’s attorney who then created a summary for the record.

Under the new system, Thomas must record evidence of his effectiveness in eight categories: strategic leadership, instructional leadership, cultural leadership, human resource leadership, managerial leadership, external development leadership, micropolitical leadership and dispositions — the human elements of being a superintendent.

For example, he said, evidence of his strategic leadership could be found in the formation of the district’s mathematics task force, a team of teachers representing every grade level and every school to develop a systemwide approach to teaching math. Thomas proposed the idea during his first day in office.
