KEYSER - The Mineral County Board of Eduction met in executive session Tuesday evening for the purpose of evaluating superintendent Troy Ravenscroft’s performance in his first year on the job.


Not only did they find he met or exceeded all expectations, but they also commended him for his leadership in a very difficult year.


Wednesday morning, the board issued the following statement:


“The board unanimously concurred that the superintendent met and/or exceeded his personal goals, as well as the performance evaluation standards set forth by the West Virginia superintendent evaluation form.


“The board specifically commended Mr. Ravenscroft for exceeding standards with his outstanding communication with administration, staff, students, parents and the community in general.


“We appreciate and celebrate Mr. Ravenscroft’s leadership and innovative approach during this most challenging of years and we look forward to our continued partnership as we strive for excellence for all students of Mineral County Schools.”


Ravenscroft was hired for the superintendent’s position in May 2019 and was awarded a three-year contract.


All board members were present for Tuesday’s meeting, but Rob Woy recused himself from the evaluation process as he is Ravenscroft’s father-in-law.
