PUSD Superintendent's Evaluation Schools & Kids, posted by Dark Corners of Town, a resident of the Country Fair neighborhood, on Jun 23, 2009 at 7:33 am
...Or the lack of one? Originally scheduled for June 2, the PUSD Board (see May 29 mtg minutes) moved it to June 22. Expected to see it last night.... it is now scheduled for October 6. But there is no mention of this in any of the Board meeting minutes.
Who made the decision? And when? Why wait so long? What is the rubric for measuring a Superintendent's performance?

Yes, the Board must meet the contract. If there is a change, it should be in writing. It is not on line that I can see. It could be a precursor to a retirement announcement, but you'd have to either ask for the change to the contract at the district office or contact board members directly.

There is something right at the end of the minutes for the May 26 meeting. Since I know it's a pain to dig through all the PDFs that are available on the PUSD website, I'll retype the paragraph here:
"Chris [Grant] asked the other trustees if they want to, due to the election, consider changing the June 2 meeting. They could incorporate the superintendent's evaluation. Consensus was to cancel the June 2, 2009 meeting and to add the superintendent's evaluation to the closed session on June 22."
The best way to find out what criteria are used when evaluating the superintendent is probably to contact board members who have been through the process before -- Grant, Ott, or Kernan. Their contact information is at this link: Web Link
