Grego provides board with proposed evaluation tool



Superintendent Mike Grego will soon celebrate his first anniversary with the Pinellas County School District.

According to his contract, that means the School Board must evaluate his performance by Sept. 1 and "act" on that review no later than Oct. 1. The School Board is running a little late on the evaluation. But Grego and board members must first agree on the method by which he will be evaluated.

Grego presented the School Board with his proposal Tuesday. The evaluation would include five ratings, ranging from unsatisfactory to outstanding. Board members would rate the superintendent on his integrity, work standards, and "rapport building." They also would rate him related to the achievement of five goals, such as "increase student achievement" and "provide quality technology and business services to optimize operations, communications and academic results."

Grego, who must by contract agree on the evaluation method, asked board members to provide him with their individual feedback, if there are concerns about his proposal. Board members also will meet individually with Grego to discuss his evaluations.

The completed evaluations will be a public record. If Grego receives a satisfactory evaluation he will get a raise - most likely the 5 percent being given to administrators. (Subject to approval.)
