Section 3 - General School Administration
General School Administration
Chain of Command
The Superintendent shall develop an organizational chart indicating the channels of authority and reporting relationships for school personnel. These channels should be followed, and no level should be bypassed except in unusual situations.
All personnel should refer matters requiring administrative action to the responsible administrator, and may appeal a decision to a higher administrative officer. Whenever possible, each employee should be responsible to only one immediate supervisor. When this is not possible, the division of responsibility must be clear.
No employee of the District, part-time or full-time, will be assigned to a position that is under the direct supervision of an immediate family member. For purposes of this policy, immediate family will be defined as mother, father, legal guardian, wife, husband, son, son-in-law, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, brother, parents-in-law, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law.
