CARSON CITY — The Carson City-Crystal Area Schools Board of Education recently completed its preliminary evaluation of Superintendent Kevin Murphy, who began his tenure on July, 1, 2012.
The board’s overall evaluation of Murphy’s performance during his first eight months with the district was very favorable.
“Murphy hit the ground running when he arrived,” said School Board President Tom Wilcox. “He has been effective in getting to know and developing relationships with the board, school staff and the communities. He is active at school and community events, as well as participating in community organizations.
“He has worked diligently to become knowledgeable of the school district budget, as well as learning the strengths and weaknesses of the districts personnel, facilities and programs,” he said. “Mr. Murphy has been evaluating the financial and facility needs of the district and continually makes recommendations on the best use of district funds, while planning for future needs and challenges. He keeps up to date with the ever changing demands and regulations from the state and sees to it that his administration, staff and the members of the board are kept well informed.”
Wilcox said the school board is very pleased with Murphy’s overall performance and board members are confident he will continue to be an effective and dedicated leader of our school district as he gains additional experience and knowledge of Carson City-Crystal Area Schools. As a result, the board will allow his contract to extend an additional year (maintain a three-year contract).
