6310 | Role of the Superintendent Policy

Date Approved: June 10 2014
Date Reviewed/Amended: September 12 2017


The Superintendent is the Chief Executive Officer of the school district and has, under the direction of the Board, general supervision of all of the public schools, the personnel and the various departments of the school system. The Superintendent is responsible for management of the schools under the School Act, Regulations, Minister of Education Orders and Board policies, and is accountable to the Board.

 

At the discretion of the Superintendent, the exercise of any powers and the discharge of any duties imposed upon the Superintendent by Board policies or by vote of the Board may be delegated to other district personnel. The delegation of power or duty, however, will not relieve the Superintendent of responsibility for the action taken under such delegation.

 

All authority and accountability of staff, as far as the Board is concerned, is considered to be the authority and accountability of the Superintendent of Schools.
