BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The evaluation of Dr. Robert P. Taylor, the superintendent of Bladen County Schools, is well underway.
The school board recently met with Taylor to continue the evaluation of his performance with the school system. Evaluations are very comprehensive and detailed, according to Valerie Newton, a spokeswoman for Bladen County Schools.
The first stage of the evaluation requires a self-assessment by the superintendent. The second stage requires a meeting between the superintendent and the district school board.
"At this time, our board and superintendent are in stage one and two of the rubric," said Newton.
The evaluation continues with a consolidated performance assessment and then a rating of Taylor by the school board. The last stage of the process includes a final evaluation and goal-setting meeting.
Newton said the results of the evaluation would not be made public due to North Carolina laws.
Taylor is currently under contract until June 30, 2014. He makes an annual aggregate salary in the amount of $130,000 and Newton said the superintendent has not received a raise.
Newton said the school board will "consider whether by specific action and with the consent of the Superintendent to extend the termination date of the existing contract within the extent permitted by state law."
Newton added there are no provisions included in his contract related to an increase in salary.
