Administrative Leeway In Absence Of Board Of Trustees Policy   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Through Board policy, the Board of Trustees tries to anticipate critical policy issues that may affect district students and operations. However, the Board recognizes that questions may arise in the day-to-day operations of the schools that are not addressed in Board policy or administrative regulations. When resolution of such issues demands timely action, the Superintendent or designee shall have the authority to act on behalf of the district.

(cf. 2110 - Superintendent Responsibilities and Duties)

(cf. 9000 - Role of the Board)

(cf. 9311 - Board Policies)

If the matter involves a policy decision that is likely to be controversial, or a matter that has a significant impact on student learning or safety, the Superintendent or designee shall notify the Board president as soon as practicable after its occurrence. The Board president shall then inform the Board as appropriate.

The Board president may schedule a review of the action at the next regular Board meeting.

If the action indicates the need for additions or revisions in Board policies, the Superintendent or designee shall make the necessary recommendations to the Board.
