Recently Newport Independent Schools made some waves with a leadership assessment report that concluded:
"The dysfunctional relationship among the local school board, superintendent, high school staff, school council and union is impeding the district's ability to meet the needs of the students."
This week, the superintendent stepped down.
Newport Independent Schools was one of four districts profiled in the Bluegrass Institute's "Rewarding Failure" commentary that outlined how superintendents are not being held accountable for results. The commentary features copies of the actual performance reviews of superintendents.
