Code No. 300
ROLE OF SCHOOL DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION
In this series of the board policy manual, the board defines the role and the employment of school district administration. Policies in the 400 Series, "Employees," also apply to administration unless a more specific policy exists in the 300 Series, "Administration."
School district administration has been given a great opportunity and responsibility to manage the school district, to provide educational leadership, and to implement the educational philosophy of the school district. They are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the school district. In carrying out these operations, the administration is guided by board policies, the law, the needs of the students, and the wishes of the citizens in the school district community.
It shall be the responsibility of the administration to implement and enforce the policies of the board, to oversee employees, to monitor educational issues confronting the school district, and to inform the board about school district operations.
While the board holds the superintendent ultimately responsible for these duties, the principal is more directly responsible for educational results, for the administration of the school facilities and for the employees.
The board and the administration shall work together to share information and decisions under the management team concept.
