The Plaquemines Parish School Board believes that student growth, district progress and community satisfaction are all affected by Superintendent’s job performance.  The Superintendent cannot function effectively without periodic feedback about his/her job performance.  Therefore, the Board recognizes its responsibility to evaluate the Superintendent in a confidential manner.  The Board shall evaluate the Superintendent in an open or closed session, based upon the desires of the Superintendent, according to standards agreed upon by both parties.  The intent of the evaluation is to provide the highest quality leadership for the school system.


The Superintendent shall be evaluated annually to document performance.  The evaluation shall include the Superintendent’s strengths and weaknesses relative to the performance objectives/specific targets outlined in the Superintendent’s contract.


The evaluation process is a three-part tool consisting of:


Part 1: Based on Performance Standards established jointly by the American Association of School Administrators and the National School Boards Association.


Part 2: Evaluates progress towards the goals established by the Board and the Superintendent at the beginning of the evaluation cycle.


Part 3:  Consists of a 360 degree evaluation of the Superintendent by members of the community and staff.  It is designed to be used by the Superintendent to receive feedback leading to professional development and an understanding of staff and community concerns that might not otherwise surface in parts 1 or 2.


Parts 1 and 2 shall be filled out by individual Board members; their responses which shall be compiled into a summary by the Executive Committee and a consensus report to be prepared by the Board for discussion with the Superintendent.  Part 3 shall be administered, compiled, and reported by the Superintendent.


The evaluation process shall follow a timeline as approved by the Board.
