Board Relationship with Superintendent
- The Board of Education (Board), the Superintendent, and the Business Administrator/Chief Financial Officer (CFO) together form the leadership of the District. The Board governs, the Superintendent administers, and the Business Administrator/CFO conducts the financial management of the District. The leadership will work cooperatively to develop and further the mission, vision, and goals of the District. The Board employs and evaluates the Superintendent and holds that person accountable for District performance and compliance with state and federal statutes. The Board delegates authority to the Superintendent to manage the District and implement the core values, vision, mission, goals, priorities, and policies of the District.
- Although the Board approves all employment contracts, the Superintendent is delegated the authority and responsibility to select and evaluate district staff within the standards established by Board policy. Trust and communication are essential to a successful relationship between the Board and Superintendent. Board members should not be involved with the day-to-day operations of the District. Requests by Board members for specific information should be directed to the Superintendent. The Board is reliant upon the Superintendent to provide timely and accurate information. The Board establishes the end results of the District and the Superintendent recommends the means and methods to accomplish these ends. The Superintendent recommends objectives, action plans, regulations, and procedures to implement the vision, mission, goals and policies established by the Board.
