It shall be the policy of the Beauregard Parish School Board that a person shall be accountable for the successful execution of his/her duties.  Accordingly, all personnel are employed by the Board through the Superintendent.


All personnel shall have the right to appeal any decisions made by a supervisor through approved grievance procedures.  (See policy GAE, Complaints and Grievances)


In consonance with the Board's policy, the following principles apply:


  1. The School Board is the policy-forming body of the district.  This body sets the general policy which conforms to the laws of Louisiana and regulations of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.  This body approves enforceable rules and regulations for the district.

  2. The Superintendent has the responsibility of enforcing the policies of the Board and the regulations of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.  The administration of all facets of operation of the schools is his/her responsibility.  The staff organization for effective operation of the schools shall be planned by the Superintendent and submitted to the Board for approval.

    The Superintendent, therefore, is the Chief Executive Officer and professional advisor to the Board.  He/she is responsible directly to the Board.

    The Board's Legal Advisor, the auditor, other appointed professionals, e.g. an architect, consultant, and the Board appointed committees shall be responsible to the Board.  This does not preclude coordination of assigned tasks with the professional staff.

  3. Each school principal has the responsibility of supervising the operations of the school to which he/she is assigned.

  4. Teachers are obligated to abide by the rules and regulations of the school system.

  5. Non-professional personnel are responsible to their immediate supervisors.
