Superintendent evaluation reviewed

Dist. 20 board studies different drafts.

Members of the District 20 school board think it’s time to use a different form in evaluating their superintendent.

At a meeting Monday night, board president Scott France said he and board members Bruce Clark and Nate Wyatt have been using the same form for several years.

France said a new evaluation, created by Nebraska State School Board Association officials, will be available in November.

Members were asked to read different drafts and e-mail suggestions to board member Lisa Geiken, who will put them into one evaluation they will approve.

On another matter, the board reviewed summaries of policy series 8000, which are internal board polices, and 9000, which deal with board bylaws.

They can be viewed on the school’s website at: www.

In board action, members approved a request by fifth-grader Javon Kruse to option into the Brady school district.

During reports, the board:
