The Board of Education has completed its annual evaluation of Juneau School District's Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich. It approved the evaluation along with a three‐year contract that will run from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2015.
Gelbrich heads one of Juneau’s largest employers and the fifth largest school district in the State. The Juneau School District has approximately 5,000 students from pre‐school through 12th grade and a staff of 745 employees. The district’s annual budget is about $90 million. Gelbrich has held the position since July 2009.
The board members reviewed performance measures, met personally with Gelbrich and completed a formal written evaluation. According to a joint statement by the board, the members are pleased with Gelbrich’s performance.
During fiscal year 2011‐12, at the superintendent’s request, his salary remained unchanged (notwithstanding the two‐day furlough taken as part of balancing the operating budget). For the 2012‐13 budget year, the board approved the superintendent’s request that his salary and benefits remain at the 2011‐12 level.
