I. KSBA Presentation Regarding Superintendent Evaluation Process

5 14 19 JCBE Meeting Audio

KRS 156.557 requires that a superintendent shall be evaluated annually according to a policy and procedures developed and adopted by a local board of education and approved by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE).

On April 16, 2019, the Board adopted the Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA) Superintendent Evaluation Process, which is a modified version of the KDE Superintendent Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (SPGES) and is focused on evidence and performance expectations using research-based effectiveness standards and district goals agreed upon by the Board members and the Superintendent.

According to KSBA, the process looks at past performance, sets expectations for the future, and provides information a Board needs to make decisions regarding how the superintendent is fulfilling Board expectations. This model increases communication and feedback between the Board and Superintendent and will lead to district improvements through reflection, assessment, advisement, and goal-setting by the Board/Superintendent leadership team.

During this Board Work Session, Board members will receive training from KSBA staff regarding the use of the KSBA Superintendent Evaluation Process.
