Message from Supintendent Benson

Good Morning Everyone,
First, we are all coping with the terrible events of last Friday and I know our thoughts and prayers are with the entire community of Sandy Hook.  Please know that in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy, Sheriff Dempsey and many of his deputies will be providing an increased presence in and near all of our schools this week.  Their presence is not meant to alarm but rather to reassure all of us as we do our best to maintain a safe and productive week of learning for our students.  In addition to our cooperation with the Sheriff’s office, our schools are reviewing their security and safety procedures to include frequent walks around the school.

School Board fine-tuning evaluation for Superintendent

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.

The School Board itself deserves high marks for a full transparency in this process.

School Board approves additional school assignments

The King George School Board last week approved and released the names of the instructional leaders, department chairmen, class sponsors and club/activity advisors at two more of the division’s five schools for the new school year which started last month. The personnel action took place at a meeting on Oct. 10.
The assignments were made for King George High School and Potomac Elementary School, with assignments previously approved for the other three schools on Sept. 24 and reported in our Oct. 3 issue.

School Board’s Hunter Field quandary

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.
