Alabama State Superintendent Michael Sentance could express his thoughts about a recent evaluation — and find out more about his future — at a meeting of the Alabama State Board of Education this morning.

Board members – some of whom objected to the form and process – gave Sentance poor grades on an evaluation last month. Members of the board have complained about poor communication from Sentance, particularly on decisions related to the Montgomery Public Schools intervention.

Sentance has not commented directly on the evaluations, though he told the Advertiser last week that he did not have plans to leave his job. It’s also not clear what Sentance’s critics on the board plan to do; members last month declined to comment on options they were considering.

The contract Sentance signed last year allows a majority of the board to fire him with 60 days notice. But the contract also requires Sentance to be given time to improve should he get a poor evaluation.
