Policy 301.02

Succession of Authority to the Superintendent

In the absence, of the superintendent, it shall be the responsibility of the other district administrators to assume the superintendent’s duties. The succession of authority to the superintendent shall be in this order:

1.  Associate Superintendent
2.  Assistant Superintendent

If the absence of the superintendent is temporary, the successor shall assume only those duties and responsibilities of the superintendent that require immediate action. The successor shall assume the duties when the successor learns of the superintendent’s absence or when assigned by the superintendent or the board. If the board determines the absence of the superintendent will be a lengthy one, the board shall appoint an acting superintendent to assume the responsibilities of the superintendent.

References to “superintendent” in this policy manual shall mean the “superintendent or the superintendent’s designee” unless otherwise stated in the board policy.
