"...the superintendent must evaluate student performance on standardized tests, curriculum, and attendance and drop-out rates.
The district's school board made changes to the contract at its meeting last month. At the time, the district would not release what specific changes were made.
She must also report to the school board and make any changes she sees necessary. The report must include goal and student achievements required by school code."

Should the BOE give Dr. Lathan a $10,000 bonus?
I guess it would depend up on if she met the goals that were set previously by the board. In early July, WMBD 31 obtained part of Dr. Lathan's contract, after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The FOIA revealed:
Peoria Public Schools Superintendent Grenita Lathan may be awarded $10,000 by the school board. Lathan's contract allows for a performance bonus of up to $10,000 each year based on goals agreed to between the superintendent and the board. The board Monday is being asked to approve the maximum bonus for the 2010-2011 school year. Lathan makes a base salary of $198,000 a year. Source
