The School Committee will conduct its evaluation of Superintendent Sheldon Berman at a public meeting on Wednesday, June 26 at 7 p.m.

At their meeting Thursday, Chairman Joel Blumstein said the review process will remain similar to the past several years. Berman is expected to submit his end of the year goals and standards to the committee by June 10.

Each committee member has also been asked to prepare an individual evaluation and report by June 18, and a composite evaluation based on the individual reports will be completed by Blumstein by June 24.

All of the documents will become public record.

"The school committee is required to do an evaluation of the superintendent in an open session, and that's what we'll do," Blumstein said at the meeting. "As always we invite feedback. We have gotten lots of feedback on all types of topics, including on Dr. Berman, and so I would continue to encourage people to submit input."

Berman's contract was recently discussed behind closed doors in an executive session.

"There is not much I can say about Dr. Berman's contract at this point," said Blumstein, adding that the committee welcomes and will consider any public input offered.

Berman's current contract is set to go through June 30, 2020.
