This will be Fernandez’s third evaluation, which will only cover the period from January 1st 2015 to December 31st 2015.
Guam – Guam Department of Education Superintendent Jon Fernandez will be in the limelight in the next couple of weeks as the Guam Education Board prepares to evaluate his performance as Superintendent for the year 2015.
GEB Chairman Peter Alexis Ada says the evaluation is required by law and will be conducted by the nine voting board members. He explains that their evaluation will be based on the following five topics: Classroom and Curriculum, Corrective Action Plan, Professional Relationship (between principals and administrators), School Learning Environment, Safety, Building and Facilities, and Teamwork and Budgeting.
Ada says, “Because each of us are independent I am comfortable to say that I think the Superintendent will be smiling. I’m talking collectively okay. I think he’s done a good job and I’m comfortable to say that. There might be small areas where we need a little improvement here and those are things that are easy to work with.”
Ada says the board will start their evaluations of the GDOE Superintendent next week. The evaluation results and comments will then be presented to the Superintendent the following week on February 1st. After the Superintendent is given a chance to respond, the evaluation results will be announced to the public.
