Superintendent Malone Submits
Self-Evaluation to School Committee

Superintendent of School Matthew H. Malone, Ph.D. submitted a Superintendent’s Self-Evaluation to the School Committee at its April 13, 2010 meeting. The 47-page document is a measure of the work that the superintendent and his staff have been doing since he took the helm of the 16,000-student Brockton Public Schools in August.

“This is an excellent way for me to evaluate the work I have been doing and the progress the district has made in the past nine months,” the superintendent said.

The document tracks progress Malone and the district have made in meeting goals the School Committee set for his administration at an August 20, 2009 retreat.

“I believe in an open and honest dialogue between myself, the School Committee, the staff and the public; that’s why I am sharing my self-evaluation with everyone. Through this process I’ve identified areas of strength and weakness, and I will continue to work my hardest to make this school district the best in Massachusetts.”

The School Committee selected Malone as its new superintendent in June, 2009. Prior to his arrival in Brockton, he led the 2,400-student Swampscott Public Schools, where he managed curriculum, staffing and development for students and staff in five school buildings. A former Marine sergeant, Malone began his career in education as a paraprofessional and long-term substitute in the Boston Public Schools in 1993. He also worked as a high school social studies teacher in Boston from 1995 to 1999, as a middle school assistant principal in Duxbury from 1999 to 2000, and as headmaster of Monument High School in South Boston from 2000 to 2003.

Dr. Malone was also employed as a special assistant to the Superintendent of San Diego, CA Schools from 2004 to 2005 before he was named Superintendent of the Swampscott Public Schools in July 2005. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Suffolk University, a master’s degree in secondary education from Boston College and a doctorate in educational administration from Boston College.
