Angela Taylor piece follow-up: WCSD Superintendent evaluation methods questioned? And ?

From Reno Gazette-Journal today, November 3, 2017:


Davis evaluation method discussed

Sam Gross Reno Gazette Journal USA TODAY NETWORK

The Washoe County School District board of trustees met to conduct the final public portion of superintendent Traci Davis’s job performance review on Thursday evening.

Issues surrounding the review itself remained a theme throughout the presentation to the board. Issues ranged from a myriad of district strategic goals that were never added to the evaluation, to concerns from Davis on how her success is measured.

The board spent $19,500 to hire two independent contractors to facilitate the review. The rubric and evaluation method itself were approved by the board.

So, now that the public and school personnel-teachers and principals–have given the Superintendent a “minimally effective” rating, teachers ratings amongst the lowest–a controversy erupts over whether the evaluation method, at least that part of it that produced less than flattering results for the Superintendent–questions are being raised over whether the Board chose method for evaluating the Superintendent is problematic?

Would methods be questioned had the public and school personnel rated Superintendent Davis highly?
