The board went into a forty minute “executive session” to discuss “administrative effectiveness, personal attributes and human relationships, and professional attributes” of Superintendent Danny Bell.
According to board President Otha Anders, the evaluation was at the urging of the Louisiana Department of Education (LADOE), and presumably applies to all superintendents in the state.
A written form was distributed to all board members for the evaluation.
See here the document.
At the conclusion of the closed session, no one volunteered any significant comment about what was discussed.
In other business, the board heard reports from Architect Mike Walpole about ongoing construction projects. He said the new turf installation, lighting, and concession area renovations at Ruston High School are on schedule for completion before next fall’s football season.
Walpole also reported on planned construction at Cypress Springs Elementary.
Business Manager George Murphy reported that the March, 2014 sales tax collections continued the positive trend for the year.
