Tippecanoe School Corporation
Bylaws & Policies
 

1111 - CONTROL RESPONSIBILITY

It is the intent of the School Board that the affairs of the Corporation be controlled in a manner that ensures efficiency and minimizes administrative conflicts from rising to the Board level.

It is, therefore, the policy of the Board that the organization, operation, and evaluation of the total school program of the Corporation and all matters related to the administration thereof be under the single control of the Superintendent of Schools except where the law designates responsibility of others. The Superintendent is authorized to delegate his/her administrative authority to other employees for the proper and complete performance of their duties, but the final responsibility remains with the Superintendent.

Each employee of the Corporation shall be under the general direction of the Superintendent. In the absence or disability of the Superintendent, s/he shall designate an administrator to act in his/her stead. Instructional staff members shall be immediately responsible to the principal of the building in which they work. Other employees shall be immediately responsible to the administrative personnel under whom they work.

All personnel shall refer matters requiring administrative action to the administrator immediately in charge of the area in which the matter arises. Administrators shall refer such matters to the next higher authority when necessary.
