Introducing SuperEval: The School Superintendent Evaluation System


Buffalo, New York — PLS 3rd Learning is pleased to announce the launch of SuperEval, a digital platform that simplifies the state-mandated evaluation of school superintendents by their respective school boards of education. Unveiled at this year’s New York State Council of School Superintendent’s Fall Leadership Summit, SuperEval is a paperless approach to THE COUNCIL’s Superintendent Model Evaluation and saves users valuable time to focus on advancing district goals while promoting healthy, efficient leadership teams.

“We are thrilled to support school superintendents and their boards of education with SuperEval,” says Michael Horning, Jr., Executive Vice President of PLS 3rd Learning. “Having a web-based platform to provide a systemic process to a superintendent’s evaluation transforms the experience and saves countless hours when compared to traditional paper-based approaches.”

Replacing the current paper-based model, SuperEval streamlines the superintendent evaluation process in five specific steps all completed online. With drag-and-drop functionality, superintendents can easily create a digital portfolio of evidence in support of identified leadership competencies. Each leadership competency identifies indicators and criteria allowing the board members to score a superintendent’s performance as “Highly Effective,” “Effective,” “Developing,” or “Ineffective.”

Traditionally done manually by the board president, SuperEval consolidates individual board evaluations of the superintendent and creates a single evaluation through a click of a button. Evaluations are archived in a secure, cloud-based location for superintendents and their boards. The system also features an export of a superintendent’s evaluation in response to a freedom of information request and thus supports public transparency in the measurement of a school superintendent’s annual performance.

SuperEval provides a model of excellence as a superintendent works deeply with their board to ensure the evaluation is objective, reflective, and evidence-based resulting in a systematic process to ensure a high-quality evaluation for the school district leader.

PLS 3rd Learning has a rich history delivering educational resources and web-based systems to tens of thousands of educators around the world. SuperEval is available to school districts in all 50 states.
