Seattle’s Superintendent Performance Review

Charlie Mas:

Well, while folks are talking about having the public kibbitz on school district labor contracts, I suppose we can’t help having comments on the Superintendent’s contract as well. The Board will soon take up the matter of the Superintendent’s annual performance review and action on her contract.
How has the Superintendent done?
I suppose the only proper way to answer that question would be to review her performance relative to her job description and the performance expectations for her that were established and defined in advance. These performance expectations should, of course, all be objectively measurable outcomes. That is, after all, her definition of accountability.
