The purpose of this section is to define the role and the employment of school district administrators. Policies in the 400 Series, "Employees," also apply to administrators unless a more specific policy exists in the 300 Series, "Administration."
School district administrators have 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 administrators are 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 administrators 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.
The board holds the superintendent ultimately responsible for the administration of these policies. Under the direction of the superintendent, the principals shall be directly responsible for educational results, for administration of the school facilities and for employees.
The board and the administration shall work together to share information and decisions under the management team concept.
