For the 2017-2018 School Year, the Board of Education ("Board") created and adopted a new evaluation process that includes ongoing checkpoints throughout the school year to keep the Board informed of performance and progress. The checkpoints include quarterly check-ins, a mid-year formative assessment, and a final evaluation. For the 2018-2019 school year, the Board revised the evaluation process for clarity, but kept the same structure.
On May 16, 2019, the Board completed its end-of-year summative assessment of Superintendent Christina Kishimoto, which determines her final evaluation performance ratings for the 2018-2019 school year. The formative assessment the Board conducted early in the school year informed, but did not determine, the results of the summative assessment because the Board reassessed Superintendent Kishimoto's performance near the end of the school year. The Board gave Superintendent Kishimoto an overall rating of "effective" for the ten-month period covered by the final evaluation. To achieve an "effective" rating, Superintendent Kishimoto had to demonstrate performance that consistently met expectations and had to maintain effective results, satisfactory program outcomes, and good relations with students, staff, and community members.

Mid-Year Formative Assessment
The mid-year formative assessment is a mid-year check-in where the Board and Superintendent have a formal conversation about performance to date, progress on priorities, and areas of strength or opportunities for improvement. At its December 6 and December 21, 2018 special meetings, the Board conducted its formative assessment of Superintendent Christina Kishimoto for the 2018-2019 school year, pursuant to the Board's superintendent evaluation process. The Board gave Superintendent Kishimoto an overall rating of "effective" for the six-month period covered by the formative assessment and will reassess her performance during the final evaluation near the end of the school year.
