Superintendent Clegg gets mixed job review
Superintendent Randy Clegg got a mixed job review Thursday from the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage District 191 School Board.
In its annual review, the seven-member board said Clegg met four of seven job standards in 2012 and didn’t meet three.
A statement, read by Board Member Sandy Sweep at Thursday’s board meeting, listed the standards but didn’t specify which Clegg did and didn’t meet.
Nor did it specify which board members were critical of Clegg’s performance or on which standards. It said determination of whether Clegg met a standard was based on board consensus.
“For example, if five Board members feel a standard has been met and two Board members feel the standard has not been met, the rating is ‘meets standard,’ ” the statement said.
The standards are for “shared vision,” “culture of learning,” “management,” “family and community,” “ethics,” “social context” and “goal attainment.”
Board members evaluated Clegg in recent closed meetings. Minnesota law allows boards to conduct superintendent evaluations in closed-door meetings and requires a public summary at the next open meeting after the review is finished.
Clegg, who was hired in 2008, is under a three-year contract that expires next June 30. He came to the district from the superintendent’s job in Clinton, Iowa, to replace Ben Kanninen, who retired.
