Fayette County School Superintendent Tom Shelton got a glowing review in his second annual evaluation from the board of education at the board's meeting Monday night.

Shelton met or exceeded expectations in all eight areas of performance evaluated by the board.

His first year as superintendent was "a year of observation and learning," the second was "a year of planning" and the year to come "will be a year of action and implementation," the board wrote in its evaluation.

Board member Daryl Love praised Shelton for "tackling the issue of culture, which is huge for us. We have a good district, but we really want to be great. ...Hats off to a good year and a great start."
