1210 - BOARD - SUPERINTENDENT RELATIONSHIP

The School Board believes that, in general, it is the primary duty of the Board to establish policies and that of the Superintendent to administer such policies. The Superintendent shall be responsible for the drafting of proposed policy and recommending changes in current policies to the Board. The Superintendent should be given the latitude to determine the best method of implementing the policies of the Board.

The Superintendent, as the chief administrator of the School Corporation, is the primary professional advisor to the Board. S/He is responsible for the development, supervision, and operation of the school program and facilities. His/Her methods should be made known to the staff through the administrative guidelines of the Corporation.

In order to expedite negotiation procedures, the Superintendent is to assist the School Board in determining negotiation strategies and the selection of members of the negotiation team for collective bargaining with the recognized union.

The Board is responsible for determining the success of the Superintendent in meeting the goals established by the Board through annual evaluations of the Superintendent's performance. The Board, in formulating its position with regard to the performance of the Superintendent, shall rely, whenever possible, on the objective outcomes of its evaluations rather than on subjective opinions.
