    Why do you have to do this if you are almost done?

    My state's contract (standard boilerplate thing) states that you "may" be required to have another evaluation prior to completion of your contract. My personal thought is that it probably serves as a method of digging for a reason to extend the contract. I don't know if it's really true but it sounds like an ambiguous excuse to make some more money. Just my opinion.
