Board sets admin goals, evaluation process

Print Article

BELOIT - The School District of Beloit Board of Education agreed on goals for its interim superintendent and a tool to evaluate him at its Tuesday evening special meeting, according to information from Board of Education President Pam Charles in an interview following the meeting.

"The evaluation tool gives us a framework to reach the superintendent's goals and the district's strategic plan goals," Charles added.

Childs is currently serving one year as interim superintendent for the district, ending July 1. The district hopes to have a new permanent superintendent by that time.

The first goal for Childs will be to facilitate board development of a 10-year vision for the district.

"The board and superintendent believe the vision should be more focused expectations for student outcomes," Charles said.

Additional goals focus on students and staff.

The code of conduct is about to undergo a review and possible modifications by an ad-hoc committee that is forming. Charles said it will be the superintendent's role to offer guidance through the review process and ensure teachers, principals and support staff implement the code properly and effectively.

Another goal is for administrative meetings to model a professional learning community driven by data and student outcomes. Childs will also develop an equitable and sustainable compensation plan for staff.

The superintendent will represent the district on the Greater Beloit Economic Development Council and the City Center Council. The final goal will be for the superintendent to maintain communications with the African-American and Hispanic communities through regular dialogue.

At Tuesday's meeting the board also chose an evaluation tool to measure Childs' progress.

"The evaluation process begins now. The first step is developing goals and laying out expectations for the superintendent as well as the board," Charles said.

After the board's governance workshops, the board will develop an evaluation timeline for the remainder of Childs' contract.
