•  Submit bond issues to be voted on by the people of the district.
•  Appoint the Superintendent as its chief executive officer.

Exemplary Board Status

In order to receive this recognition, the Board had to comply with the GSBA Standards for Local Boards of Education, which includes meeting strict requirements in several areas.

Superintendent's Duties
The Superintendent is appointed by the Board and functions as the chief executive officer to administer the operation of the schools and oversee the implementation of Board policies. The Superintendent is also an advisor in keeping the Board informed of the operation and progress of the various programs of the schools. The Superintendent is available to the Board as a professional resource; and the Superintendent's recommendations normally precede Board action on questions relating to the operations, staffing, and financing of the various programs of the schools.
