A Good Year for the Milford School District and its Superintendent



The Milford School Committee commended Superintendent Dr. Kevin McIntyre during his annual end-of-year evaluation, praising him for his work ethic and community engage- ment.

The 2018/2019 school year evaluation was presented at the July 18 School Committee Meeting. McIntyre received an overall "Proficient" rating.

"A 'Proficient' educator is the kind of educator you want to see in front of your children; the kind of leader you want for your schools," said School Committee Chairperson Jen Parson, who presented the annual evaluation. "This rating speaks so highly of the work Dr. McIntyre has done for our students and schools."

A Superintendent is rated on his or her goals and on four different standards, receiving a rating of unsatisfactory, needs improvement, proficient, and exemplary.

Parson presented the highlights of the ratings for each of the standards, the result of com- piling each School Committee Member's evaluations.

In the standard of Instructional Leadership, Parson said the main thing that stood out to committee members was the interventions the Superintendent supported throughout the district such as programs for academically at risk students, promoting a deeper understand- ing of assessments with his staff, and his development of partnerships with local colleges giving students exposure to higher education while still in high school.

In the Management and Operations standard, the Committee gave McIntyre kudos for col- laborating with the local Police and Fire Departments, hiring of a new SEL Director which allows new social emotional programs to be put into place throughout the district, and ef- fectively recruiting candidates for open positions.

"I don't know of another place that has a recruitment and interview process like we have here," said Parson. "What a great welcome for the candidates and what a sense of security for us as a school committee."

Under the Family and Community Engagement standard, Parson cited the district's "ad- mirable" social media presence and the number of community events it has hosted this year. "The community is certainly welcome in our schools," she said.

Regarding the Professional Culture standard, Parson said giving students exposure to pathways to college has been a "source of pride" for the district.

While much of the evaluation was positive, the Committee Members did ask McIntyre to focus on increasing the district's accountability classification for MCAS Scores. "We are currently 'partially meeting' our target," said Committee Member Christopher Wilson. "We want to improve that."

Overall, the Committee agreed that the fourth year under McIntyre's Leadership has been a successful one for the Milford Public Schools.

"We are most fortunate in Milford to have a reflective leader who is very willing to listen and consider different perspectives," said Parson. "The measures that he has gone through to bring high quality to people Milford is admirable."

Parson also commented on some of McIntyre's other accomplishments including increas- ing counseling services for 140 families in Milford, working on the long-range facilities education plan, and technology implementation. "It's has been a great year and we are very fortunate to have you," she said.

McIntyre thanked the School Committee and gave credit to his administrators and staff for the work that was done this year. "They all work incredibly hard and do an amazing job," he said. "I want to say thank you to [them] because without their hard work, I think a lot of the positive stuff that was said [in the evaluation] wouldn't be possible."
