DALLAS -- The Dallas School District Board of Directors unanimously approved Superintendent Christy Perry's annual evaluation and offered to extend her contract with the district at its March 8 meeting.

Board members gave Perry an overall positive assessment, noting her accomplishments and areas she should continue to improve.

"In our opinion, Christy Perry has displayed sustained superior performance through the year and has maintained a positive focus that resonates through the district," the evaluation read.

The board recognized Perry's handling of a difficult year for school funding and leading a restructure of elementary schools in the district to save money. Perry's effort in the passage of the $8.6 million maintenance bond last November and community leadership were also included in her list of accomplishments.

The board encouraged Perry to focus on three areas: student achievement and interventions for all students; development of a new teacher evaluation system; and implementation and evaluation of communication strategies.

Perry will begin a new three-year contract with the district as superintendent starting July 2011. Discussion of Perry's future salary will occur at a later date.
