Rock Hill School Board Gives Superintendent Very Positive Evaluation

Statement from Robert "Bob" Norwood, Board Chairman

Rock Hill School District Three of York County

During tonight's meeting (9/27/09), the Board met in Executive Session to conduct its annual evaluation of its Superintendent, Dr. Lynn Moody. The Board is pleased to report that Dr. Moody received a very positive evaluation.

We are extremely pleased with the progress the District has continued to make during the past school year under Dr. Moody's leadership. We are pleased that Mt. Holly Elementary School and Dutchman Creek Middle School had successful openings at the beginning of this past school year. The administration continues to focus on the Board's primary goals of improving student achievement and lowering the dropout rate. Dr. Moody and her administration have established several effective programs to address these goals. The District also obtained district-wide SACS accreditation for all of its schools.

The Board wishes to express publicly its full support of Dr. Moody and her staff. The Board and administration recognize that the District had significant challenges this past year with the budget due to the uncertainty of federal, state and local funding, which is consistent with experiences school boards across the state have had. The Board and administration remain committed to continuing to manage the District's finances in the best interests of the District and the community. We are grateful for Dr. Moody's outstanding leadership, work ethic, and her commitment to the success of our District.

The Board voted to extend Dr. Moody's contract by one year, or through June 30, 2014. Pursuant to the terms of her contract, and based on her very positive evaluation, Dr. Moody is to receive a 2% salary increase, consistent with the 2% step increase received by teachers. Dr. Moody advised the Board that she plans to return the money to the District with a donation to the Rock Hill Educational Foundation.
