CC: Administrative Organization Plan

C: General School Administration

The legal authority of the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) is transmitted through the Superintendent of Schools along specific paths from person to person as shown in Board-approved organizational charts for the district as a whole and major divisions in particular. 

In establishing administrative plans and procedures, the Superintendent will be guided by the knowledge that the Board values free interchanges of ideas outside the formal framework of direct responsibility.  Nothing in an organizational plan for the district is intended to interrupt the open flow of assistance and creative support among personnel at every level. 

The organizational chart for the district establishes the framework for administration and lines of authority and responsibility.  In its interpretation, the following principles should be kept in mind: 

  • each member of the staff, at whatever level, will be told clearly to whom he or she is responsible and for what functions; 
  • whenever possible, each member of the staff will be made responsible to only one immediate supervisor for any one function; 
  • each staff member will be told to whom he or she can appeal in case of disagreement with an immediate supervisor. 

The Superintendent may re-organize lines of authority and revise the organizational chart, subject to Board approval of major changes and/or the elimination and creation of positions.  The Board expects the Superintendent to keep the administrative structure up to date and able to respond to the changing needs of the school system.
