Evaluation week

Tonight the City Manager will be evaluated by the City Council. On Thursday, the School Committee will evaluate the Superintendent.
While I am sure all of the Councilors will have remarks, it is interesting that the Manager's evaluation boils down to a straight report card: while he doesn't get letter grades, one could easily make the terms line up with those.
The Superintendent is evaluated via narrative (which are part of the public record). I don't know if that makes it easier or harder: probably harder to boil down into a headline, I suppose.

In Leicester we've used a scoresheet the last two years. Similar to the report card idea, but we have a lot more criteria than the City Council uses on the Town Manager. The scoresheet approach makes it a bit more scientific and empirical.
