Robert Fichtenmayer of Wareham, Chairperson of the Upper Cape Cod Regional Vocational-Technical School District Committee, was pleased to announce that Superintendent Robert A. Dutch received a proficient evaluation from the School Committee. The report was announced at the May 10 meeting, at which Elizabeth Magauran of Marion remarked that she wishes there was a rating between Proficient and Exemplary as Dr. Dutch “is much better than Proficient having shown exemplary performance in a number of areas.” Dr. Dutch, who is in his sixth year as Superintendent, received exemplary marks from several members of the nine-person committee, most notably in the area of Family and Community Engagement. Dr. Dutch received proficient marks in Instructional Leadership, Management and Operations, and Professional Culture.
The committee members, representing the five district towns which include Bourne, Falmouth, Marion, Sandwich, and Wareham, agreed that the statement “it is all about the kids” sits deep in Dr. Dutch’s heart and stands as his marching order.
Chairperson Fichtenmayer summarized the evaluation stating that “Dr. Dutch works hard in finding the ways, monies, and materials to make his staff member’s jobs easier and better. His efforts and leadership approach are demonstrated by the high caliber of students that graduate.”
