Board Members discussed: sign-in sheets; name tags; and the process for speakers.

20. LR 2 Authorize Transmission of the Draft Superintendent Employment Contract to the Superintendent Candidates
Attachment: Superintendent Draft contract 2012-1-26[2].pdf
Attachment: REVISED RESPONSE[1].pdf
Attachment: Florida Statute 1001.50[1].pdf
Minutes: 

Mrs. Brill questioned the term of the contract and Board Members agreed to change the start date immediately if feasible with the Superintendent.

Mrs. Brill questioned the performance objectives and what areas the Board would rate them and allow the Superintendent to come back with goals.

Mrs. Brown questioned why the evaluation instrument was not included in the contract.

Mrs. Brill suggested revising 3A to read "The Board shall submit a written evaluation each year."

Mr. Shaw would like to see the evaluation reflect similar goals and expectation as principals evaluations.

Dr. Robinson questioned the time line and suggested the next goal setting be within 60 days of the evaluation and would like the Superintendent to submit a strategic plan within 90 days of being hired.

Mrs. Brown questioned the term and termination clause and suggested a super majority vote.  Board Members were in consensus to revise the contract to include a super majority provision in the event of termination without cause.

Dr. Robinson stated that she would prefer not to include an automatic extension.

Board Members were in consensus for a three year contract term.

Board Members were in consensus to strike paragraphs 2B & C regarding the automatic renewal.

Board Members were in consensus to add language that by a certain date in the third year the Board would decide whether to renegotiate. 

Dr. Robinson would like the FCAT results before the evaluation. 

Board Members were in consensus to evaluate 30 days after the FCAT scores are made public.

Dr. Robinson would like to see an evaluation calendar for the purpose of giving guidance and direction for the next school year.

Mr Barbieri suggested that Board Members provide their additional comments on the evaluation date to Mrs. Wood before the 2/15/12 meeting.

Dr. Benaim suggested Mrs. Wood send the candidates bullet points on the revisions that were made this evening.
