HAMILTON-WENHAM REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
DEVELOPMENT OF PROCEDURES
The Superintendent will be responsible for specifying required actions and designing the detailed procedures under which the District will operate in accordance with Committee policy. These detailed procedures will be designed to implement policies, goals, and objectives of the Committee and will be one of the means by which the District are governed.
In the development of procedures, the Superintendent may involve at the planning stage those who would be affected by the procedures, including staff members, students, parents/guardians, and the public. He/she must weigh with care the advice given by representatives of staff, student, and community organizations. He/she will inform the Committee of such advice when presenting pertinent reports of procedures and in presenting procedures for Committee approval.
As long as the Superintendent operates within the guidelines of policy adopted by the Committee, he/she may issue procedures without prior Committee approval unless Committee action is required by law, or the Committee has specifically asked that certain types of procedures be approved, or the Superintendent recommends Committee approval in light of strong community attitudes or probable staff reactions.
