Alabama Schools Superintendent Responds to Evaluation

Aug 11, 2017

   Alabama Schools Superintendent Michael Sentance provided his response yesterday to an unflattering evaluation from the State Board of Education. Last month all but one board member gave the superintendent low marks for his job performance thus far. Sentance told the board his administration already has a string of accomplishments. Some of the achievements Sentance touted include creating the first office of school improvement, creating a strategic improvement plan and developing plans to better teacher education programs. He apologized to board members if he had sometimes failed to communicate well with them. The board ended the meeting without responding to the superintendent’s comments. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey Thursday voiced support for the superintendent. Sentance was hired less than a year ago.
