NEPN/NSBA Code: BDD
The Board of Directors believes that the development and adoption of policies for the district is the most important function of a Board and that the execution of the policies should be the function of the Superintendent.
Delegation of its executive powers by the Board to the Superintendent provides freedom for the Superintendent to manage the schools within the parameters of the Board’s policies and frees the Board to devote its time to policymaking, planning and appraisal functions.
The Board holds the Superintendent responsible for the administration of its policies, the execution of Board decisions, the operation of school programs and facilities, and for keeping the Board informed about school operations and problems.
