The Board has met on three separate occasions over the past two weeks to review recent actions and statements that Mr. Snowberger has made in his capacity as superintendent.
As a Board, we monitor Mr. Snowberger’s performance against three primary criteria: Board/Superintendent Relations; Operational Expectations; and Results Policies. We have used these three meetings (and we will continue to meet) to verify if Mr. Snowberger was in compliance with the appropriate indicators within these criteria. These conversations are being treated as an employee matter. Once Mr. Snowberger returns to work from his approved leave we will conduct a mid-year evaluation of him including an examination of the incident and follow up correspondence concerning it. The public should have confidence that these recent events and the subsequent interactions with the Durango Herald, as they relate to our three performance criteria policies, will be considered in our mid-year evaluation.
As a volunteer board, we take our job seriously and understand the governing oversight entrusted to us by our community. In our role, we will continue to focus on achieving the district’s desired results, representing the community’s interest, and monitoring our one employee, Mr. Dan Snowberger.
