The Senate has unanimously passed a bill that would allow school boards to meet privately with superintendents to discuss preliminary job evaluations.
Republican state Sen. David Givens of Greensburg is championing the measure, which now goes to the House for consideration.
The 38-0 Senate vote came on Tuesday.
Givens said the legislation provides for an initial closed-door meeting before the final draft of an evaluation is discussed and voted on publicly.
The legislation is Senate Bill 178.
