CCB - Line and Staff Relations
The Board expects the superintendent to establish a clear understanding of working relationships in the school system with all staff.
Staff will be expected to refer matters requiring administrative action to the administrator to whom they are responsible. That administrator will refer such matters to the next level of administrative oversight when necessary. Additionally, all staff are expected to keep the person to whom they are immediately responsible informed of their employee related activities.
Lines of authority should not restrict the cooperative working relationship of all staff members in developing the best possible school programs and services. In addition, this policy does not restrict protected labor relations communications of bargaining unit members. The established lines of authority represent direction of authority and responsibility. When the staff is working together, the lines represent avenues for a two-way flow of ideas to improve the program and operations of the school system.
