306 – Succession Of Authority
SUCCESSION OF AUTHORITY
In the absence of the Superintendent, it shall be the responsibility of the Associate Superintendent to assume the Superintendent’s duties. In the absence of both the Superintendent and the Associate Superintendent, it shall be the responsibility of the other administrators and supervisors to assume the Superintendent’s duties. The succession of authority to the Superintendent shall be dependent upon the area of concern.
If the absence of the Superintendent is temporary, the Associate Superintendent shall assume only those duties and responsibilities of the Superintendent that require immediate attention. If the absence of the Superintendent will be a lengthy one, as determined by the Board, the Board shall appoint an acting superintendent to immediately assume the responsibilities of the Superintendent.
References to “Superintendent” in this policy manual shall mean the “Superintendent or the Superintendent’s designee” unless otherwise stated in the Board policy.
