The Mountain Brook Board of Education believes that the legislation of policies is the most important function of a school board, and the execution of the policies is the function of the superintendent.

    Delegation by the Board of its executive powers to the superintendent provides freedom for the superintendent to manage the schools within the Board’s policies, and frees the Board to devote its time to policy making and appraisal functions.

    The Board holds the superintendent responsible for carrying out its policies within established guidelines and for keeping the Board informed about school operations.
