School Superintendent David Banks praised in annual evaluation
The Morgan County School Board gave Superintendent David Banks high marks on many fronts in his yearly evaluation. The board discussed his job performance in an executive session at their June 19 meeting.
A statement from former school board president Laura Smith regarding their evaluation noted that the school board continues to be pleased with the quality of how Banks does his job and said that he has met or exceeded all standards.
Banks “continues to structure the organization to meet the learning needs of all students. He also focuses on those students that need additional support,” Smith said.
Banks is consistent and respectful to employees and they feel he’s a “fair and confident leader,” she said.
Smith said Banks met the needs of students and responded to community concerns with the organization of the teen pregnancy task force. Programs were implemented and there is ongoing investigation of ways to meet student health concerns.
Banks also helped the board make some tough financial decisions and worked hard with staff to acquire School Board Authority funding for the Berkeley Springs High School gymnasium building renovations.
“The Board looks forward to working with Mr. Banks during another challenging but rewarding year with the Morgan County school system,” Smith said.
