Superintendent evaluation, budget on MCC agenda

June 23, 2018

SCOTTVILLE — The Mason County Central school board will consider the renewal of Superintendent Jeff Mount’s contract Monday after completing the sixth and final round of an evaluation process that started in March.

The board will hold a special closed-session meeting at 6 p.m. to compare notes and complete individual and group effectiveness ratings for Mount, who will conduct a self-evaluation as well.

Mount said the six-session evaluation — a new format for the district — was a success in that it allowed board members to spend significant time discussing key issues, including finance and enrollment.

“One of the most important things a board does is evaluate its superintendent, because the superintendent is responsible for everything in the district,” Mount said. “We tried something different this year and we broke it out into different sections, and it’s been very productive ... We’ve been able to have really in-depth conversations.”

Mount said he’s been grateful throughout the process to receive feedback from board members.

“I was very pleased with the results and the positive feedback I’ve received,” he said. “But also the critical feedback because that’s how you grow. Our evaluation system is all about growth and we want that for every individual and that starts at the top.”
