Evaluation of the Board and the President
The Board is committed to assessing its own performance as a Board and that of the President’s in order to identify strengths and areas which may improve.
The Board shall conduct a review of its performance and of the President’s with the intention of strengthening performance, identifying and reaching consensus on goals, ensuring clear understandings of responsibilities, and clarifying expectations among Trustees with the President.
The Chair will annually organize and convene a special meeting of the Board for evaluating the Board’s and the President’s performance.

All documents related to the Board’s self-evaluation and the President’s evaluation are confidential and exempt from disclosure under Idaho’s Public Records law, Idaho Code §§ 9-337, et seq.
- An executive session of the Board should occur no later than June 1 of each year to review the President’s performance and the Board’s self-evaluation. This review will include a discussion with the President.
- The evaluation results for the Board and the President will be used to identify accomplishments in the past year and goals for the following year.
- Any changes to the evaluation instruments, including goals, should be addressed at this meeting.
