Every member of the school board rated Adkins’ performance worse in 2021 than they did in 2020.
The board’s split stays the same year to year.
Mary Fischer, Debbie Jordan, Cathleen Morgan, and Chris Patricca favored the superintendent more than Betsy Vaugh, Gwynetta Gittens, and Melissa Giovanelli did.
In these most recent evaluations, Vaugn and Giovanelli went as far as to rate Adkins’ performance as unsatisfactory.
The district has faced its fair share of controversy this year, with heated debates over masks, LGBTQ equality posters, and one board member’s letter to the governor accusing the district of waste, fraud, and abuse.
Dr. Adkins says his decision to retire has nothing to do with the recent controversy.
