Danville Independent Schools Superintendent Carmen Coleman received top marks in her latest evaluation from the Board of Education.
Coleman, who has led Danville’s school district for three years, is truly an asset to local education, said Board of Education vice chairman Lonnie Harp during a special meeting Thursday.
Every year, board members in every district must complete a detailed superintendent evaluation process that is set by the Kentucky School Boards Association. Harp, chairwoman Jean Crowley, and board members Julie Erwin, Troy McCowan and Tim Montgomery first started evaluating Coleman in a June 11 executive session. They publicly released the results Thursday, with Crowley noting that Coleman received between “excellent” and “outstanding” in every area evaluated.
“It’s basically just an excellent report,” Harp said. “We couldn’t be happier to have Dr. Coleman with us.”
Coleman received her highest rankings, 3.9 out of a possible score of 4, in the areas of leadership and district culture as well as instructional leadership. Those fields are two out of the nine standards on which all Kentucky superintendents must be evaluated.
