III-06: Superintendent's Contract
North Sanpete School District
Board Policy with Guidelines
|Policy Number: III-6
Effective Date: 12/16/1982
Subject: Superintendent's Contract
The superintendence is becoming more demanding as the superintendent's responsibilities become more complex. The Board realizes that it is, therefore, increasingly important to attract able persons to the superintendence by making the rewards of the position commensurate with its challenges. The Board further realizes that it is increasingly important to free the superintendent from the pressures of groups in the community by insuring his/her security from the threat of sudden and unjustified dismissal.
The Board, upon the selection of a candidate or upon reappointment of the incumbent superintendent, shall endeavor to secure the dignity of the position and the freedom of leadership appropriate to the responsibilities of the superintendent through an explicit contractual agreement. Such contract shall meet the requirements of Utah law and the regulations of the State Board of Education and shall protect the rights of both the Board and the Superintendent. The Board shall recognize that while it is a policy making body, the execution of policy is properly delegated to employed professional administrators.
