Call to Order
Chair Fassi called the meeting to order at 11:03am.
Chair Fassi began the meeting by mentioning that an annual evaluation of the Library Director is not a requirement, but the BOLT feels that it is appropriate to do. He drew attendees’ attention to the handouts that were provided, and gave a total cumulative average for all scores of 3.36 out of 4. He also briefly reviewed some of the comments received on trustees’ evaluations. Chair Fassi mentioned that 2020 was not a typical year, mostly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and that he felt the scores leave room for growth for Director Rogers. Trustee Payne said he thought the evaluations were good, and Trustee Berg asked if Chair Fassi knew what the averages from last year’s evaluation were. The Clerk of the BOLT said she would get them. Trustee Berg asked if Trustee Payne or Chair Fassi were concerned that the 3.36 overall average means that the evaluations were harsh on Director Rogers.
Chair Fassi said he would entertain a motion to submit the Director’s Annual Evaluation to the full BOLT for approval; Trustee Berg moved and Trustee Payne seconded.
ACTION: Director Rogers’ 2019-2020 Annual Evaluation was unanimously approved to be forwarded to the full BOLT.
The meeting adjourned at 11:08am
