BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s state Superintendent of Education Cade Brumley has received a positive job evaluation after his first year on the job, which included responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
The state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education reviewed Brumley’s performance in a closed-door session.
The Advocate reports the board gave Brumley a 3.05 rating out of a possible 4, according to the superintendent’s office. That puts him in the effective/proficient category, the second highest of four used to evaluate public school teachers and other educators.
The 11-member state education board defers to the superintendent to release details of his performance review because it is a private personnel matter.
Brumley, who has held the job since June 2020, is paid $285,000 per year and was entitled to a 3% pay raise of $8,550 after receiving the positive job review. But Brumley told The Advocate that he is declining the raise.
