June 09, 2013

Proposed evaluation model submitted

Washington County Public Schools submitted its proposed model for evaluating teachers and principals to the state on June 3, Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said last week.

State law calls for student growth to be part of teacher and principal evaluations starting with the upcoming school year.

The deadline to submit the plan was June 7, Wilcox said.

Some school employees’ schedules change for summer

Many Washington County Public Schools facilities are switching to a summer schedule, in which they will be closed Fridays, Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said last week.

The summer schedule takes effect this week and extends through Aug. 9, according to the school system’s website.

Employees will work 10-hour days Monday through Thursday during the summer schedule, Wilcox said.

School board meeting changed to June 25

The Washington County Board of Education’s next meeting has been pushed back to June 25 due to scheduling issues among board members, Board President Justin Hartings said.

The June 25 meeting, which was originally scheduled as a daytime meeting on June 18, will start at 6 p.m., Hartings said.

The school board meets in the auditorium at the 820 Commonwealth Ave. administrative complex.
