Superintendent's Contracts--What Should They Say? The School Attorney's Point of View.
Bittle, Edgar H.
With the interests of the school district in mind, the author offers suggested provisions for a superintendent's contract. He reviews a popular prototype contract and points out where modifications might need to be made in each section. The author recommends first reviewing state legislation to see what contract provisions may be required by law. He specifies that before entering into the contract, the board should carefully review the elements of the contract, the job description of the superintendent, the policies of the district as they relate to the superintendent's responsibilities and to the responsibilities of the administrative team, and the evaluation procedures that the board intends to follow for the superintendent and other administrators. It is emphasized that a contract cannot simply be borrowed from another school district or other source but must be modified to fit each particular school district. (Author/JM)
