— Supt. Bill Haley presented a working draft of his Superintendent Indicator of Success — Report Card Pilot to the Board of Education at its Sept. 21 meeting.
The Superintendent Report Card will serve as a means of “objective data for me to judge whether it’s been a good year or not,” Haley said.
Sharing the draft with the board, Haley went through the categories of the report card. Some of the categories include “Building Climate,” “Value to Community” and “Organizational Efficiency.”
Under each category, there is a means of gauging Haley’s overall effectiveness. The board unanimously approved the Report Card Pilot.
Also at the meeting, Haley mentioned the recent open house at Dye Elementary where students and parents were treated to a carnival-like atmosphere. A special feature of the open house was the handing out of backpacks and school supplies by Flint First Church of the Nazarene and Trinity United Presbyterian Church. Principal Detra Fields gave a presentation on the open house and Dye’s School Improvement Program to the board.
“The open house was fabulous,” she said.
Fields said she was initially approached by Pastor Steve Hittle from Flint First Church of the Nazarene, who asked her how his congregation could help the school. Those initial discussions led into the church providing backpacks for the entire school, along with the open house carnival complete with 13 stations where students could get school supplies. The open house also received help from Trinity United Presbyterian Church; the church purchased all the crayons for school supplies and ran the games at the open house.
To date, Fields said 254 backpacks had been passed out to students in need at Dye Elementary. For more information on Dye Elementary, visit www.carman.k12.mi.us.
