School Efficiency and Effectiveness Review Protocols

C. Leadership

A district’s structure, staff management and planning process provide the foundation for effective and efficient education of students. The board and superintendent function as a leadership team to meet student needs. The board sets goals, objectives, and policies for school district operations and approves the plans and funding. The superintendent manages district operations and recommends the staffing levels and amount of resources necessary to carry out the board goals and directives developed through the planning process. The building-level leadership ensures that all board policies, goals, and objectives are carried out. The building-level leader is the difference in average and outstanding schools.

The following are the primary topics of the leadership protocol: board of education, administrative team, district philosophy and communication, legal services, and parent/patron organizations.
