The Board of Education affirms the rights and responsibilities of the building principals and directors
for the administration of their various programs and buildings within the broad scope of the adopted
Board policies, rules and procedures.
Acting with the approval of the superintendent, each principal or director will be the chief
administrator of his or her school, and shall be responsible for and have authority over the actions
of students, professional and support staff, visitors, and persons hired to perform special tasks. Staff
members who work in more than one school will be responsible to the principal or director of the
school during their time in that building.
The principal or director is charged with the supervision and direction of the staff and the students
assigned to the building, as well as with the care of the school facility and its equipment. The
