LIVINGSTON, La (BRPROUD) Livingston Parish School Board members met in executive session on August 19 to review the job performance of their Superintendent, Joe Murphy.
Their evaluations resulted in a high rating for Murphy for a second year in a row.
Board members submitted score sheets that ranked the superintendent’s performance on a scale of one to four in different job performance categories.
He received several perfect 4.0 ratings across the board. Total average of all score sheets earned him a 3.75 rating; the highest tier of leadership performance.
“As part of our duties as board members, we must evaluate the job performance of our superintendent and his top administrators to determine the quality of work that we are receiving and to identify any areas where performances could be improved,” Livingston Parish School Board President David Graham said.
In his first two years as superintendent, Murphy expanded STEM learning across the district, improved technology-based learning at all campuses and expanded the use of ‘flexible classrooms’ to better facilitate learning at all levels.
Murphy has led the district’s efforts to create safe campus environments to allow students to receive face-to-face instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Murphy just started his third year of service as the district’s superintendent.
“I am very appreciative of the board’s support and leadership, especially during these very challenging times,” Murphy said. “We all share the same priority, and that is our students.”
