The Superintendent-Board Relationship.
Wennerberg, Carl H., Ed.
Guidelines recommend the development of mutual cooperation between the board of education and its chief administrator, the district school superintendent. Particular attention is given to the role of the board of education in formulating district policy, establishing effective board-community relations, selecting and evaluating the superintendent, and filling board vacancies. The complex role of the school superintendent is defined with respect to his responsibility to the board of education, the community and his staff. A series of appendices includes a sample brochure describing a school superintendent position vacancy, checklists for a superintendent interview and a community attitude survey, a superintendent employment contract, and guidelines for evaluation of both the superintendent and the board of education.
