Board/Superintendent Relationship

(back to Faulkton Area School Policies)

The board believes that the legislation of policies is its most important function and  that  the  execution  of  those  policies  is  the  function  of  the  superintendent. Together,  the  board  and  the  superintendent  are  a  team,  each  playing  a  well defined position.

The superintendent will be the chief executive officer of the board and will be responsible  for  the  administrative  and  advisory  functions  of  the  board. Planning, policy-making, and evaluation are the functions of the board.

The board holds the superintendent responsible for the administration of district policies,  the  execution  of  board  decisions,  the  operation  of  internal  machinery designed to serve the school program, and for keeping the board informed about school operations and problems.
