The Superintendent or designee shall maintain current district organization charts. Organization charts shall clearly designate lines of primary responsibility and the relationships between all district positions.

All personnel shall refer matters requiring administrative action to the administrative officer immediately in charge of the area in which the problem arises.

Administrative officers shall refer such matters to the next higher authority when necessary.
