Granby " School board works on superintendent’s evaluation

Grand County, Colorado

The East Grand Board of Education recently met with Superintendent Nancy Karas to discuss her evaluation during a meeting in Granby, Colorado.

Her contract started July 1. The board reinforced that she is doing a good job but has not put anything in writing yet, said Board of Education President Tom Sifers.

The board has not formalized a tool to evaluate the superintendent, but could have a plan in place by next month, he said.

“I think the East Grand School District as a whole has started on a positive basis,” he said.

This is based on feedback he receives.

“If there’s something negative I usually hear about it,” he added.

The new administrative team is working well together, he said.

“We have a group of people who are trying to work really hard to up the standards of the school,” Sifers said.

Winter Park resident Chas McConnell has informed the Board of Education that the district will receive more than $1 million from money-in-lieu of land.

The Ridge at Winter Park Ranch will give about $583,000; and Sterling Pointe, about $482,000.

These funds have not been earmarked yet, and have to be used for building improvement projects, Sifers said.

“We knew that it was coming but with the economy down … we were a little surprised that it would come at this time,” Sifers said

“Instead of giving us land they’re giving us dollars, and they’ve met their commitment to education,” Sifers said about the developers’ commitments.

McConnell said he found out about the developers owing the district money through his own independent research, and that it should go to the schools.

“They need to share the wealth,” he said.
