Superintendent Terry Grier is being evaluated by the San Diego Unified school board in closed session this morning, according to a meeting agenda. This looks like a continuation of his evaluation several weeks ago, which was listed on a closed session meeting agenda for June 23.

Grier has some specific goals he was tasked with this year, including upping the graduation rate by 2.5 percent, developing a balanced and transparent budget and “develop(ing) and implement(ing) a strategic direction” for the school district. His original contract allows for bonuses of $3,500 each if he makes the grade. I’m curious how they’re going to measure the graduation rate goal: While state data recently showed that dropout rates fell, the numbers were for the 2007-2008 school year, largely before Grier’s reforms. I’ll keep asking around and post any updates I get.
