301.60 Succession of Authority to the Superintendent

In the absence of the superintendent, other administrators shall assume the superintendent’s duties. The succession of authority to the superintendent is to a member of the administrative cabinet who possesses a superintendent license as selected by the board.

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

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