SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS

DUTIES/ RESPONSIBILITIES

 

 

Pointe Coupee Parish School Board members represent the entire parish and think in terms of the whole parish rather than in terms of one ward or one school.  It shall be understood by Board members that the Board is a policy-making Board, not administrative.  Board membership is considered to be a job of service, not of patronage.  Whereas policymaking is a function of the School Board, administration is the function of the Superintendent and his/her staff.  In situations where there is interfacing of policymaking and administration, the Superintendent shall act according to his/her best judgment until the Board can meet, draft, and adopt appropriate policy concerning the situation.
