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.

Once again, the King George School Board is currently unable to come to agreement on transferring unused property over to county ownership. The dispute harkens back to old antipathies toward Supervisors that many hoped had been set aside by the current School Board.
This time, Hunter Field is the topic of discussion, though it could just as easily be the former middle school building which was ceremoniously closed down in June 2009.
Three members were clearly in favor of transferring the deed, but that didn’t become clear until near the end of a lengthy and contentious discussion prompted primarily by questions and objections by School Board member John Davis.
At last week’s meeting on Oct. 10, Chairman Mike Rose said he wanted to talk about it since a new stadium has recently been completed. “We said when the new stadium was built, we were going to turn Hunter Field over to Parks &Rec.,” Rose said, but appeared to waver on that opinion as the discussion ensued.
