c) Administrative regulations shall be developed by the chief school officer in cooperation with affected or interested staff members or lay persons.

d) The central office staff shall provide overall leadership and assistance in planning and research.

f) Areas of responsibility for each individual shall be clearly defined.

g) There shall be full opportunity for complete freedom of communication between all levels in the school staff.

Line Responsibility

All employees of the District shall be under the general direction of the Superintendent. Teachers shall be immediately responsible to the principal of the building in which they work. Other employees shall be immediately responsible to the administrative personnel under whom they work directly.  

The lines of responsibility/reporting shall be as depicted on the organizational chart.
