FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – The Fort Wayne Community School (FWCS) Board discussed plans regarding Superintendent Dr. Wendy Robinson’s increase in compensation.

Dr. Wendy Robinson did not get a raise at the school board meeting Monday night, and it will not be determined for a couple weeks. At the meeting, the FWCS School Board presented an evaluation process they will use to determine whether Dr. Robinson will get a raise. Under contract, Dr. Robinson must be evaluated quarterly, but it’s never affected her paycheck before.

Board members said the guidelines for past evaluations have been inconsistent. They plan to create a permanent process based off one they obtained from North Carolina. That statewide evaluation is based on a superintendent’s performance. Dr. Robinson will be evaluated on last school year’s performance.

For the 2010-2011 school year, board members will consider Dr. Robinson’s performance on the implementation of the LEAD Process, how well she met teacher contracts, and if she succeeded at getting North Side and South Side High Schools off probation. They will use a scale of zero to four, zero (0) being “Unsatisfactory” and fout (4) being “Distinguished.” Over the next couple weeks, board members will discuss and agree on a series of goals for evaluation next year.

If Dr. Robinson gets a positive assessment, she will receive a bonus for 2010-2011, and an increase for 2011-2012. The amount of compensation increase is yet to be determined. It has been two years since the superintendent got a raise.

The school board will conduct the evaluation over the next couple weeks and their final decision will be revealed at the meeting September 26.
