2050 Superintendent of Schools

The administration of the district in all its aspects shall be delegated to the Superintendent, who shall carry out the administrative functions in accord with the policies adopted by the Board of Education. The execution of all decisions made by the Board of Education concerning the internal operation of the school system shall be delegated to the Superintendent.

The Superintendent of Schools is the chief executive officer of the Board of Education and has charge of the administration of the schools under the direction of the Board of Education. The Superintendent has the authority to waive Board policy when deemed necessary. Under the authority of the Superintendent, personnel may begin duties prior to official Board approval if deemed necessary to maintain smooth operation of the district. The Superintendent may immediately accept written resignations on behalf of the Board of Education. Such actions shall be presented to the Board of Education for final approval at the next scheduled meeting.

The job of the Superintendent is a group of related tasks, each of which requires special knowledge, information, concepts, abilities and skills. The Superintendent is a generalist whose responsibilities apply in all areas of operation. The educational program must be viewed in its entirety. All tasks must be accomplished so the whole school system functions with balance and precision. For the Superintendent, there is no order of priority of responsibilities.

In discharging responsibilities, the Superintendent works through a problem-solving process. Since time is a component of any process, the Superintendent works through time or sequence. In the solution of any problem, the Superintendent is conscious of the past, the transition period and the future.

The Superintendent’s duties may include, but are not limited to, the following:

A.      Exercising general supervision over the operation of all the schools in the district.
