Superintendent Evaluation Instrument



     Please take the time to complete the Evaluation Instrument for Dr. Orner’s job performance for the 2016-2017 school year. 


     As directed by Pennsylvania's School Code, Superintendents hired after the fall of 2012 are required to develop objective performance standards by which school boards can supervise and evaluate job performance.  The purpose of this survey is to solicit input about the performance of Dr. Michele M. Orner, Superintendent of the Halifax Area School District, for school year 2016-2017. Although it is ultimately the school board's job to evaluate the performance of the district's Superintendent, the Board of School Directors believes that all stakeholders should be afforded the opportunity to provide feedback. Please answer every question to the best of your ability. When possible, provide supporting comments indicating specific examples of distinguished performance and/or areas for improvement.


This survey is anonymous and identifiable information cannot be collected.


This survey is open from April 17 to May 9, 2017.


On or before June 30, 2017, a statement will be published on the district's website as to whether or not Dr. Orner met the objective performance standards mutually agreed upon by her and the Halifax Area School District Board of Directors.
