The role of the School Board is to ensure the school district is responsive to the values, beliefs, and priorities of their communities by setting direction, establishing an effective and efficient structure, providing support, ensuring accountability, and providing community leadership as advocates for children. These five responsibilities represent core functions that are fundamental to a school system’s accountability to the public that they can only be performed by an elected governing body. Authority is granted to the board as a whole, not each member individually. Therefore, board members fulfill these responsibilities by working together as a governance team with the superintendent to make decisions which will best serve all the students in the community.
The superintendent implements the school board’s vision by making day-to-day decisions about educational programs, spending, staff, and facilities. The superintendent hires, supervises, and manages the central staff and principals.
