2018-2019 Superintendent Performance Evaluation
The Boyertown Area School District Board of School Directors met on July 23, 2019, and determined the Superintendent has met the agreed-to objective performance standards and goals (rated proficient) as outlined in the evaluation tool developed by PSBA (Pennsylvania School Boards Assoc.) in accordance with best practice and adopted by the Boyertown Area School District.
The Pennsylvania School Code provides as follows: The Superintendent shall be the chief administrative officer and chief instructional officer of the Board of Education and the School District, and shall be responsible for the execution of all actions of the Board, the administration and operation of the public school system subject to the policies of the Board, and the supervision of all matters pertaining to instruction in all the schools under the direction of the Board.
The annual performance tool uses the following assessment measures as a basis for indicating the Board’s impression of the Superintendent’s performance in the areas of Student Growth and Achievement; Organizational Leadership; District Operations and Financial Management; Communication and Community Relations; Human Resource Management; Professionalism; and Annual Goals. The evaluation tool was developed by PSBA (Pennsylvania School Boards Assoc.) in accordance with best practice and has been adopted by the Boyertown Area School District.

Superintendent Entry Plan
Below is the link to the Superintendent’s Entry Plan. The purpose of the entry (transition) plan is to create an intentional process for the transition of the new superintendent into Boyertown Area School District during the first 100 days from the beginning or after Board approval. This document outlines specific strategies to provide Superintendent Dana T. Bedden with the opportunity to learn about the school district and to enable the development of a keen understanding about the people, partners, and the community that support Boyertown Area School District. This process is designed to (1) create ideas for sustaining and enriching the record of success, and (2) work with stakeholders to identify those areas where the intensive focus may be needed. This plan was also developed to assist him in developing a network of contacts in the community. Dr. Bedden’s Entry Plan has been approved by the Board of School Directors, and progress will be tracked and reported to the School Board.
