Local boards of education are responsible for the implementation of state laws and regulations. They are also responsible to the electorate from which they receive the right to serve. Formal Responsibilities of the board and its elected members:
Hire a superintendent and approve the district's administrative structure
Approve the operating budget
Graduate the senior class
Establish a long-term vision and set the direction for the district
Hold the superintendent accountable for effective administration
Formally and regularly evaluate the superintendent's performance
The board speaks through the formal action it takes. Once a vote is taken, that is the position of the board.
