The purpose of school administration is to help create and foster an environment in which pupils can learn most effectively. All administrative duties and functions will be appraised in terms of the contributions that they make to better instruction and to higher student motivation and achievement.

The Board will rely on its Superintendent of Schools to provide the professional administrative leadership that such a goal demands.

The design of the administrative organization will be such that all schools are part of a single system subject to the policies set forth by the Board and implemented through a single Superintendent. Within district policies and regulations, principals will be responsible and accountable for the administration of their respective schools.

Major goals of administration in the district will be:

  1. To manage the district’s various units and programs effectively.

  2. To provide professional advice and counsel to the Board and to any advisory groups established by Board action.

  3. To implement the management function through a team management approach so as to assure the best and most effective learning programs through achieving such sub-goals as:

    1. Providing leadership in keeping abreast of current educational developments;

    2. Arranging for the staff development necessary to the establishment and operation of learning programs that better meet more learner needs;

    3. Coordinating cooperative efforts at improvement of learning programs, facilities, equipment, and materials;

    4. Providing access to the decision making process for the ideas of staff, students, parents and others.
