200 - Statement of Guiding Principles

The Board of Directors shall recognize and maintain the distinction between those responsibilities which are appropriate to the Board of Directors as the legislative governing body of the School District, and those administrative responsibilities which are to be performed by the Superintendent of Schools and the 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 program is conducted. They shall also ensure that the community be informed of the needs, purposes, values, and status of the schools.
