The Board believes that effective education includes proper evaluation of the results produced from the educational resources provided by the community and the government. As the governing body of the District, the Board has the responsibility for assessing how well goals are being accomplished.
The Superintendent shall develop and oversee systematic and specific administrative procedures for conducting research and program evaluations. The design of these studies shall include:
|A.||Clear statements of expectations and purposes for each program coupled with specifications of how their successful achievement will be determined
|B.||Provisions for staff, resources, and support necessary to achieve each program's purposes
|C.||Evaluation of each program to assess the extent to which the program's purposes and objectives are being achieved
|D.||Recommendations for revisions and modifications needed to better fulfill expectations and purposes
The Superintendent shall maintain a schedule of assessment activities and program evaluations and shall make periodic evaluation reports to the Board. Findings will be used to evaluate the progress of students and the effectiveness of the curriculum and/or the effectiveness of the school/delivery system.
The Superintendent shall recommend improvements in the educational program annually based on District evaluation.
The Board may employ experts from outside the District to serve in the evaluation process.
The Superintendent shall maintain a systematic accountability plan for all schools. The plan shall annually evaluate each school on performance indicators. These indicators shall include student performance outcomes and other areas designed by the Superintendent.
