The Board of Education expects the administration to specialize in the process of:

  1. Decision-making and communication.
  2. Planning, implementation, and evaluation.
  3. Synthesis of individual, group, school systems, and community goals and interests into a coherent entity. The Superintendent is encouraged to conduct the operations of the school system according to the team management concept.
