ROCHESTER CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT UPDATE
On May 29, 2018, New York State Leadership Group Executive Director, Robert W. Christmann, was requested by the Rochester City School District Board of Education to conduct a professional development workshop. The agenda included Board-Superintendent Roles and Responsibilities, a preliminary superintendent evaluation discussion and 2017-2018 district goal setting review.
Mr. Christmann had previously served the Board of Education as its superintendent search consultant and was later involved in creating a very comprehensive one year study plan called “The Path Forward”. Commissioner feedback considered this workshop to be a highly productive one setting the stage for the superintendent’s upcoming annual evaluation with “Super-Eval” from PLS 3rd Learning.
Following this workshop, the Rochester Board of Education has requested that Mr. Christmann facilitate their summer retreat on July 19-20. The focus of this work will be on the setting of board and district goals for 2018-19 as well as ways to improve the quantity and quality of internal communications. Also addressed will be the process to upgrade the Board’s effectiveness as a governing body.
