Good Morning Everyone,
First, we are all coping with the terrible events of last Friday and I know our thoughts and prayers are with the entire community of Sandy Hook. Please know that in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy, Sheriff Dempsey and many of his deputies will be providing an increased presence in and near all of our schools this week. Their presence is not meant to alarm but rather to reassure all of us as we do our best to maintain a safe and productive week of learning for our students. In addition to our cooperation with the Sheriff’s office, our schools are reviewing their security and safety procedures to include frequent walks around the school.

The King George School Board has spent portions of its last several meetings in selecting and then tweaking a new evaluation instrument to be used beginning this year to formally communicate its satisfaction with new Superintendent Rob Benson’s performance.
Benson was hired earlier this year, and took over the position effective July 1.
Benson has said he wanted clear direction on the School Board’s expectations for his performance. In fact, the refining of an evaluation tool has been a collaborative process between all members of the School Board and with Benson.

The King George School Board gave high marks to Superintendent Rob Benson this week for his performance since he took over the division’s top position fewer than six months ago, on July 1.
The School Board itself deserves high marks for a full transparency in this process.
