Matthews makes the grade with evaluation

GLASGOW — In his first year as superintendent, Bo Matthews received a shining evaluation from the Barren County School Board for his work expanding the reach of the schools. He was also called a “role model in all situations.”

“Bo is to be commended for his work,” said board chairman Robbie Toms. “He has gone over and beyond in a year what anybody has.”

In the nine elements of the performance evaluation, Matthews received five “outstanding” ratings, the highest ranking for the evaluation. The board thought he was doing an outstanding job in leadership and district culture, policy and governance, human resources management, values and ethics of leadership, and student achievement and learning categories.

Some examples the board noted in their evaluations which brought Matthews to an outstanding level were bringing a Chinese exchange teacher to the Barren County schools with a commitment to the Confucius Institute partnership and reorganizing the district organizational chart to better utilize funding. His work with elected representatives and the Kentucky Department of Education on “a number of district-related opportunities” and his completion of more than 100 hours of professional development during the last year were also noted as reasons for his outstanding ranking.
