Supporting and evaluating your chief executive is among the most important functions of any charter school board.
The board is responsible for effectively selecting, supporting, and evaluating your charter organization’s CEO.
With a proven evaluation process built right into BoardOnTrack, the charter leader evaluation process becomes straightforward.
Here’s how it works. And even if you aren’t a BoardOnTrack member just yet, you’ll find these steps helpful in ensuring you complete an effective evaluation of your school leader.
Your annual CEO evaluation is only part of the process. Be sure to look at our year-round approach to CEO support and evaluation.
Your CEO evaluation coordinator takes the lead.
Usually, the board chair or chair of your CEO Support & Evaluation Committee will lead the process.
If you don’t have a CEO Support & Evaluation Committee, your Governance Committee might take the lead. Or, a board member who has HR experience.
To start a new evaluation in BoardOnTrack, select the start date, and BoardOnTrack will automatically complete a 90-day timeline for you.
Be sure to follow a good process. Your start date should be agreed upon with your governance team and your CEO. Learn more about our CEO support and evaluation timeline.
It’s easy to change the dates should you need to. But, it’s ideal to have your process buttoned down tight from the outset.
BoardOnTrack guides you through a proven, evidence-based CEO evaluation process.
What’s the most common reason CEOs' name for not having a consistent evaluation? It’s that the board hasn’t set the process. BoardOnTrack solves this by building the process for you. Year to year, even if your board officers change, you have a proven process you can rely on.
We’ve designed this process based on the experiences of hundreds of charter school boards nationwide, as well as BoardOnTrack’s founder’s extensive knowledge.
With our evaluation process checklist, the right steps are all laid out for you.
From when to gather your CEO’s input, to the board’s input, and even staff’s input, and what happens next.
Your board doesn’t have to create the process. We’ve done it for you.
