The Bradley County Board of Education presented the results of Bradley County Director of Schools Dr. Linda Cash’s annual evaluation during its monthly meeting held Thursday.
Cash was given an average score of 4.72 on a 1-to-5 scale after all seven of the board members had met with her individually and given her scores in a variety of categories.
“I can assure you — out of seven people, that is extremely wonderful,” board Chairman Troy Weathers said of the score.
Board members evaluated Cash by assigning scores based on how she performed on dozens of criteria. Each of the criteria were based on standards created by the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC).
Cash was evaluated in the following categories: “Vision of Learning,” “School Culture and Instructional Program,” “Management and Operations,” “Collaboration with Families and Community,” “Integrity, Fairness and Ethics,” “Political, Cultural and Social Context,” and “Superintendent-Board Relationship Context.”
She received no average category score lower than 4.66, which led to the final 4.72 score. Her highest-scoring category was “Integrity, Fairness and Ethics,” with a score of 4.87.
All the board members present gave Cash words of thanks and compliments after the evaluation was announced.
“I don’t know anyone who works any harder,” board member Jerry Frazier said.
Board member Vicki Beaty said she is “truly appreciative” of the vision Cash has for the school district. Board member Nancy Casson said she agreed with those comments.
Board member Amanda Lee also complimented Cash’s vision for the district, mentioning the ongoing Partnerships in Industry & Education Center (PIE Center) project.
Weathers complimented the “heart” Cash has for children and how teachers and administrators have spoken positively about her leadership. Board member Ted Bryson continued the positive comments, noting he had “no complaints.”
Weathers said the board will consider renewing Cash’s contract for four years when it reconvenes for its August meeting. There will be no county school board meeting in July.
Cash’s current four-year contract runs through June 30, 2021. She has been in the director of schools role since June 2015.
