What a Board Should Expect from Its Professional Staff.
Koeppe, Richard P.
To maintain a good school system, a school board should expect from its administrators certain attitudes and behaviors: first, administrators should consider the students' interests above all else, support board decisions once made, consider ethical issues, be optimistic, and take pride in their jobs and their school district; second, they should keep the board well-informed, know the division of responsibilities in their district, make decisions and discharge their duties using common sense, involve affected persons in decision-making, and take responsibility for their own professional growth. These expectations, however, should be mutual--the board is similarly responsible to its administrators. (MCG)
