The Washington County Board of Education is going to change the way it evaluates Schools Superintendent Herman G. Bartlett's job performance.
School Board members said the evaluation process isn't working properly.
"The tool is not a good tool and needs to be changed," Board President Edwin Hayes said Tuesday. "What we're currently doing is not good."
The board also might change the date of the evaluation.
As part of Bartlett's contract, he is guaranteed an evaluation by March 31. That's too soon for the three recently elected board members, who have worked with Bartlett for only two months.
"Could we at least get a job description? I have nothing to base it on," said board member Mary Wilfong.
Other board members agreed it is difficult to assess the superintendent's performance so soon after being elected.
"Just as soon as you walk in, you are expected to do an evaluation," Hayes said later. "That's not fair to the board or the superintendent."
