The Acadia Parish School Board recognizes and directs that School Board members and the Superintendent keep their functions clearly in mind -- the School Board exercising legislative and judicial functions as a School Board, the Superintendent serving as the School Board's executive officer and its professional advisor.  It is equally important that they work together in harmony and good will.  A Superintendent cannot succeed without the cooperation of the School Board.


The Acadia Parish School Board recognizes that it is the responsibility of the Superintendent, with the advice and assistance of his/her staff, to prepare and make recommendations to the School Board concerning all important business and professional matters.  It further recognizes that the School Board may accept, modify, or reject recommendations and call for new ones.  After the School Board has formally adopted any policies, plans, or programs for the operation of the schools, it is the responsibility of the Superintendent to put these policies, plans or programs into effect in complete conformity with the decisions of the School Board.
