Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Board of Education gave Superintendent Jeff Moss positive marks for his first six months on the job.

The full board announced the results of its six-month evaluation of Moss. The executive summary of its evaluation praised Moss, who took over in July, for bringing "energy, innovation, understanding and an open style of leadership and communication to Beaufort County schools."

The evaluation's primary focus was the five components developed by Moss for his first 90 days on the job, including: an effective partnership with the board, an action plan to increase student academic performance and close the achievement gap of various sub-groups, strengthening staff morale and community confidence, improving district support operations and services, and providing quality professional development programs.

"Dr. Jeffrey Moss has a clear vision that aligns well with the mission and strategic goals of the board and district," an executive summary of the evaluation says. "His central and overriding theme is the improvement of instruction for all students."

There was no compensation tied to the six-month review, which did not include student data as one of its elements.

The Board believes that Dr. Moss has more than met the expectations of his 90 Day Plan and is extremely pleased with his first six months as Superintendent.
