School board commends Schlachter in sixth year of superintendency

The Gresham-Barlow School Board released its evaluation of Superintendent Jim Schlachter at the June 9 school board meeting. The evaluation report states that Superintendent Schlachter presents strong leadership for the school district and works tirelessly to ensure success for all students.

Per School Board Policy CBG, the Board evaluates the Superintendentís job performance at least annually. The evaluation is to be based on the administrative job description, any applicable standards of performance, Board policy and progress in attaining any goals for the year established by the Superintendent and/or the Board.

This year, in addition to Board observation, additional input was solicited through a 360-degree management evaluation, as well as feedback from the Teaching Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Survey. While the TELL Survey doesnít directly evaluate the job performance of the Superintendent, the perception of the district is influenced by the Superintendentís leadership.

In the 360-degree management evaluation, the Superintendent was graded on six standards which are listed below. When the responses from the six standards were averaged, the Superintendent received a grade of A-.

Recurring themes remain on improving different styles of communication and the challenges a changing community demographic can present to the district. There was also much reflection in nearly every area, of the impact of a positive bond campaign on all aspects of the operation of the schools, instructional support to staff, and the improved educational outcome for students.

Schlachter was appointed superintendent of schools in July of 2010. Prior to that, he served as assistant superintendent for two years. Before becoming assistant superintendent, he spent four years as the districtís K-8 director. He has also served as principal of Gordon Russell Middle School and Damascus Middle School. In addition to his administrative experience, Schlachter spent 18 years in the classroom teaching high school and middle school science.

The Boardís annual evaluation focused on six areas.
