Superintendent Evaluation

On Aug. 8, 2023, the school board held a closed session meeting to discuss the annual superintendent evaluation. In pursuant with Minnesota Statute 13d.05, this is a typical proceeding, and the school board is to report a summary of its conclusion following the meeting. Former Superintendent Dr. Astein Osei was evaluated in five performance areas and two priority work areas from the strategic plan. The performance areas were:

  • relationship with the board
  • financial management
  • community and public relations
  • effective leadership of staff
  • management of central office professional skills and abilities

These performance areas were evaluated on that scale of unsatisfactory, developing, accomplished and exemplary.
