4210 Administrative Organization and Operation
SUBJECT: ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION AND OPERATION
The basic principles of Administrative Organization and Operation are:
- The working relationships shall involve two types of officers: line and staff. Line organization involves a direct flow of authority upward and downward from chief school officer to building principal. A line officer has power and authority over subordinates. Staff officers do not stand in the direct line of authority; they serve as coordinators or consultants.
- The Board of Education shall formulate and legislate educational policy.
- Administrative regulations shall be developed by the chief school officer in cooperation with affected or interested staff members or lay persons.
- The central office staff shall provide overall leadership and assistance in planning and research.
- A reasonable limit shall be placed upon the number of persons with whom an administrator shall be expected to work effectively.
- Areas of responsibility for each individual shall be clearly defined.
- There shall be full opportunity for complete freedom of communication between all levels in the school staff.
