Know Your Job to Hire the Best Staff.
Updating School Board Policies, v14 n3 Mar 1983
To help coordinate the effort of filling school staff positions, this brief article pinpoints the responsibilities of the school, board, superintendent, school attorney, and personnel director, and identifies the steps in the hiring process. The school board's role, which goes far beyond being a rubber stamp, is described as including both its legal obligations and its implications for personnel policy. The major components of the superintendent's role are given, as are the uses of the school attorney in routine hiring. The responsibilities of the personnel administrator and principals are also laid out, with a short summary of the role interactions to be expected of all parties responsible for hiring. In chronological order, a checklist gives the major administrative steps in the selection process. To conclude, a one-page "Policy Adviser" answers questions on what items may be discussed legally in executive session and under what circumstances policy should be suspended. (JW)
