Legal authority of the Board is transmitted through the Superintendent along specific paths from person to person as shown in the Board approved organization chart of the District. Lines of authority on the chart represent direction of authority as well as direction of consultation and cooperation. The Superintendent may reorganize lines of authority and revise the organizational chart subject to Board approval of major changes or the elimination and creation of positions. The Board expects the Superintendent to keep the administrative structure up to date with the needs for supervision and accountability throughout the District. The Board and the Superintendent recognize that in order for the District to function as the Board intends; it is necessary for authority and responsibilities of personnel be defined and lines of authority established and followed. All personnel will have the right to appeal any decision made by the administrative staff member to the next higher authority and through appropriate successive steps to the Board.
