Every school district needs a system of sound superintendent performance evaluation. School district superintendents are and must be accountable to their school boards, communities, faculties, and students for delivering effective educational leadership. To assure that they are evaluated fairly, competently, and functionally, superintendents need to help their school boards plan and implement evaluation systems that adhere to the evaluation standards. Superintendent Performance Evaluation outlines some of the problems and deficiencies in current evaluation practice and offers professionally-based leads for strengthening or replacing superintendent performance evaluation systems. This book focuses on the on-the-job performance of school district superintendents as they implement school board policy. The decision to focus on performance evaluation reflects the importance of this kind of evaluation in the move to raise educational standards and improve educational accountability. Boards and superintendents are advised to make superintendent performance evaluation an integral part of the district's larger system for evaluating district needs, plans, processes, and accomplishments.

In Building Relationships, Yielding Results, the seasoned superintendent of an urban school district provides a clear road map for effective collaboration with school boards and the type of relationship-building required to achieve long-term, sustainable reforms. Instead of keeping school board members at arm's length or inundating them with information, Julie L. Hackett demonstrates how to tailor traditional superintendent activities to include board members and increase understanding and trust. In this book, the author: Describes how district leaders can adapt existing practices, like entry and strategic planning, to create and develop productive relationships and an inclusive district culture Provides strategies that superintendents need to practice consistently in order to implement successful twenty-first-century school reforms Includes recommendations for developing and utilizing norms and beliefs protocols, strategic priority lists, and plans for monitoring progress with a school board In the face of rising expectations, competing goals, accountability pressures, and limited resources, today's superintendents require skills and vision to accomplish their goals and meet the needs of a range of constituencies. Filled with real-world examples and lively anecdotes, Building Relationships, Yielding Results provides current and aspiring superintendents with an abundance of ideas that can be customized to local circumstances.
