KEYSER - After being evaluated on a list of 82 items relating to his performance, Mineral County Schools superintendent Shawn Dilly has received a favorable evaluation from the board of education.
Dilly is beginning the final year of his second contract with Mineral County.
The board members met in executive session to discuss Dilly’s evaluation for approximately one hour, with Dilly only asked to be present for a portion of that.
When they came back into public session, board president Rob Woy read a prepared statement.
The statement was as follows:
“Along with reviewing the superintendent’s goals for the year, the board used the Model Superintendent Performance Evaluation Form provided by the West Virginia School Board Association.
“The form consists of nine categories. Categories 1 and 2, dealing primarily with student achievement, contain a total of 15 components that are required to be completed by statute.
“Categories 3 through 9, divided into communitiy relations, district finances, personnel relations, curricular standards and programs, overall leadership as related to student achievement, informational leadership, and other duties, contain a total of 67 components that can be completed optionally.
“Board members completed all nine categories containing a total of 82 components.
“For each component, board members rated the superintendent as ‘exceeds standards,’ ‘meets standards,’ or ‘does not meet standards.’ The ratings were totaled for each component with an average rating given for each.
“Regarding categories 1 and 2, the superintendent met the standards on all 15 components.
“Regarding categories 3 through 9, the superintendent met the standards on 64 components and did not meet the standards on three components.
“The board may, but is not required, to use the results to determine whether to offer the superintendent a new contract and the level of compensation and benefits to offer the superintendent in any new contract.”
Dilly’s current contract runs until June 30, 2019.
