200.00 – Statement of Guiding Principles

It is the policy of the Board of Directors to organize and maintain the distinction between those activities which are appropriate to the Board of Directors as the legislative governing body of the School District, and those administrative activities which are to be performed by the Superintendent of  Schools and his/her staff in the exercise of a  delegated administrative authority.  The function of the Board can be described as policy-making, appraisal, and evaluation.

The Board of Directors shall have the further duty of providing the financial means by which the educational programs are conducted.  They shall also ensure that the community is informed of the needs, purposes, values, and status of the schools.
