The Role of the School Board

A school board is able to fulfill its mission when the members of the board and the superintendent understand their roles and work together in an environment of trust, mutual respect, understanding and shared purpose.

Both board members and the superintendent, in order to develop and maintain a working relationship that will enable the board to get its job done and the school district to move forward, must spend significant amounts of time and energy in developing the board/superintendent relationship.

In general, it's the school board's job to make policy, while the superintendent is charged with administering the policy. With effective board/superintendent teams, each side clearly understands its roles and responsibilities.
