MADISON – Madison Board of Education recently released its performance evaluation for Dr. Dee Fowler, Superintendent of Madison City Schools.

Board policy states the evaluation is “a way to pinpoint strengths and areas for improvement.” Fowler’s contract states annual goals and objectives “shall be reduced to writing and be among the criteria on which the superintendent is evaluated in his annual evaluation.”

The superintendent receives “supplemental compensation” if he achieves these goals.

All principals, Central Office department heads and program coordinators anonymously complete an evaluation questionnaire in 10 categories. Ratings in each category could range from 1 to 5. The rating of 1 is “below average” up the scale to “satisfactory,” “very good,” “excellent” and “outstanding” as 5.

Then, Madison Board of Education reviews the surveys and completes its own evaluation with that rating scale. Final results reflect a composite average of the evaluations.

Fowler’s overall average for all sections was 4.74 (out of 5).

For the “CEO of school board” category, Fowler received a composite score of 4.86 for his effectiveness at recommending and implementing school policies. The rating for educational leadership of schools, which includes supervision of all employees and curriculum, was 4.46.

In personnel management, his rating was 4.45 for the gamut that runs from recruiting to rewarding employees. The ‘grade’ for facilities management includes both long- and short-range plans for buildings and property, maintenance, safety and construction/demolition. Fower’s rating was 4.87.

His rating in community relations was 4.80 for implementing a system-wide plan for involving residents with school concerns. In “management of pupil personnel services,” Fowler rated 4.92 for developing procedures for accurate student records, policies and discipline for student behavior and good rapport with social agencies.

Fowler’s rating in communication and interpersonal relations was 4.83 for written and aural presentations and representation of the district. His highest rating, 5, came for professional development and leadership.

In technology management, Fowler received the lowest rating at 4.25 for leading and encouraging faculties and staff to use 21st-century tools.
