Morgan County Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education has an obligation to the citizens of this County to employ the professional leadership best trained and equipped to meet the educational needs of the students. It shall meet that obligation by retaining only the best qualified person as Superintendent of Schools.

In order to fulfill that obligation, the Board shall evaluate the Superintendent of Schools, at least, annually, as to his/her success in meeting the goals and objectives established by the Board and the Superintendent within the given period of time; as to his/her success in improving student achievement generally across the county and specifically as it relates to the management and administration of low performing schools. The evaluation may also cover the performance of the Superintendent in the areas of community relations, school finance, personnel relations, curricular standards and programs and overall leadership of the County as indicated primarily by improvements in student achievement, testing and assessment.

If the services of the Superintendent are found to be unsatisfactory to the Board, s/he shall be so advised by the Board or by the Board President on behalf of the Board. In such case, the Superintendent, at the discretion of the Board, may be given an opportunity to correct the unsatisfactory conditions; or, again, at the discretion of the Board, the Board may notify the Superintendent of its intention not to renew his/her contract in accordance with the terms of that contract and pursuant to existing law.
