The Superintendent of Schools is responsible for the day to day operations of the District and can be considered the top executive or "CEO" of the District.
The superintendent implements the school board’s vision by making day-to-day decisions about educational programs, spending, staff, and facilities. The superintendent hires, supervises, and manages central office staff and principals.
Superintendents must work with school leaders -- principals -- to serve the needs of students and meet the District goals.
The superintendent must also respond to the demands of all the other constituencies and interest groups in the District: teachers, students, parents, staff, advocates, and the community at large. He must consider how to use the financial and human resources of the District in order to achieve the best results. While being mindful of competing demands, a great superintendent will be guided by what is best for all students.
