The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) partnered with the Arkansas Association of Education Administrators (AAEA) and the Arkansas School Boards Association (ASBA) to support the development of a superintendent evaluation system. 


The purpose of the Arkansas’ Superintendent Evaluation System is to:

  • Provide the board with an effective, useful instrument to conduct an annual evaluation.
  • Assist the superintendent to grow professionally.
  • Support an instructional improvement and reflection model.
  • Incorporate intervention tools for districts to ensure high academic and fiscal practices through a superintendent’s accountability system.
  • Support collaboration between board and superintendent regarding superintendent/board/district growth.
  • Create alignment between superintendent, leader, and teacher evaluation systems to develop equity, credibility, and consistency between systems.
  • Prompt districts to develop strategic plans for long-range goals for the district.

Those interested in future pilot participation should contact Anne Butcher at the Arkansas School Board Association at:
