NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Committee on Tuesday gave high marks to the superintendent as she completes her third year leading the North Adams Public Schools. 
 
In their evaluation, committee members gave Barbara Malkas marks of proficient in all but one standard, where they gave her an "exemplary" rating.
 
The annual evaluation is given through a standardized rubric focusing on instructional leadership, management and operations, family and community engagement and professional culture. Each standard had subcategories that were marked as unsatisfactory, needs improvement, proficient or exemplary.
