One of the major functions of the Board of Education is to work with the administration to establish the goals by
which the District can accomplish its mission and to provide the resources necessary for their accomplishment.
Because of the importance the Board places on accomplishing goals, it has established the following policy for
effective assessment of the District's progress toward their realization.
In conjunction with its annual evaluation of the Superintendent, the Board shall also provide the time for both the
Board and the administration to assess the progress of the District, during the previous year, toward the
achievement of current goals. Both the Superintendent's evaluation and the progress-assessment of goals shall
take place at a time of the year when the following conditions are most favorable to assure this policy operates as
A. Adequate and reliable data on results-to-date of each District goal is available (see AG 1110) so assess-
ment and evaluation can focus on how well the District is accomplishing its goals and long range plans.
B. Evaluations or progress assessments of the District's learning programs as well as evaluations of key
administrators and other staff have been completed so such data is available for reference by the
Superintendent and Board during the assessment of District goals and the evaluation of the Superintendent.
C. The Board uses this assessment/evaluation time period to assess the effectiveness of the Board as well as
each Board member.
D. Summaries and synthesized data, compiled from the evaluation of the Superintendent, the Board's self-
assessment, and the evaluation data on programs and staff, is available to serve as reference information
when determining the reasons for progress and/or lack of progress toward accomplishment of District goals
and long range plans.
This annual process of assessing/evaluating the Board, the Superintendent, staff, programs, and resources shall
not be considered finished until:
A. District goals and the strategies and actions being used to accomplish them have been reviewed and
B. Revisions have been made in light of what all of the evaluation data for that year has indicated should be
changed or should be continued in order to improve the accomplishment of District goals; and
C. The Board develops and implements a plan to improve its own performance as the body charged with the
responsibility for the governing of the District.
