Rock Hill Schools Superintendent Gets Outstanding Evaluation and Contract Extension

The Rock Hill School Board met on Tuesday, July 27, 2009 at the school district office. Most of the meeting was in executive session for the superintendent's yearly evaluation. The board did come out of executive session to vote on two items:
  • The board voted 7-0 to approve personnel changes for July
  • The board voted 7-0 to approve a one year contract extension (to 2015) and to approve the following statement:

Superintendent's Evaluation
          During tonight's meeting, 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 an outstanding evaluation. The Board is very appreciative of Dr. Moody's leadership, particularly during this past school year, given the unprecedented cuts the District was forced to make due to the uncertainty and/or lack of federal, State, and local funding. While the Board sincerely regrets the necessity of making the budget cuts, Dr. Moody has ensured that her recommendations and the Board's discussion of them have been transparent and widely publicized so there would be no surprises. Additionally, despite the enormous time that Dr. Moody and her staff have spent dealing with the District's budget and financial issues, we are pleased with the academic achievement the District has continued to make as a result of the ongoing commitment of the District's staff to teaching and learning for all of its students.

            While the Board anticipates another difficult financial year ahead, the Board wishes to express publicly its full support of Dr Moody and her staff. The Board and the administration remain committed to the needs of all the District's students, while at the same time managing the District's finances in the best interests of the District and the community. We are grateful for Dr. Moody's dynamic leadership, work ethic, and her commitment to the success of our District.          

            The board voted during public session to extend Dr. Moody's contract by one year, or through June 30, 2015. The Board unanimously believes that Dr. Moody is a talented Superintendent and one of the most able educators in Rock Hill's distinguished history.

            Dr. Moody's contract provides that the Superintendent shall receive annually any increase in compensation provided to the District's teachers. In light of the fact that neither teachers, nor any other employee, received an increase for the upcoming school year, the superintendent will not receive an increase. We emphasize that the absence of any increase in compensation for the upcoming school year is the result of the economy, not the employee's performance.
