2010 - Board and Superintendent Relations

The board recognizes the importance of an effective working relationship between the board and superintendent. The board further recognizes the distinct and separate areas of responsibility of the board and superintendent to the school district. The superintendent is responsible for the administration of the system of schools consistent with the board's policies.

To maintain a cohesive relationship between the board and the school district, the superintendent will serve as secretary of the board and will assist all board committees. The superintendent will keep the board informed of the operation of the district. The superintendent will make recommendations to the board as required by law, board policy and as otherwise determined appropriate by the superintendent. The superintendent also will assist the board in making sound decisions and meeting the requirements of law by providing information and advice regarding all matters which require board action.
