The Pennsylvania School Code requires all school districts that have hired superintendents on/after the fall of 2012 are required to develop objective performance standards and post them on the district’s website. The superintendent must be evaluated annually, and the objective performance standards must be mutually agreed upon by both the board and the superintendent.
At the conclusion of the evaluation cycle, the board must publish a statement on the district’s website as to whether the superintendent met (or did not meet) the objective performance standards.
Mr. Martin, Bentworth School District Superintendent, was assessed by the Bentworth School Board and has satisfactorily met the following performance standards for the 2022-2023 school year:
1. STUDENT GROWTH AND ACHIEVEMENT
