What Does a Superintendent Do?
It's been said of a school district's organizational structure that if the school board decides it wants to make a pie, the superintendent decides what type of pie to make, and the staff does the actual baking.  Ultimately, a superintendent is responsible for the day-to-day operations of all of the personnel and facilities in a school district.  

The duties of a superintendent can be categorized under five different areas:

1. Vision, Continuous Improvement, and Focus of District Work
2. Communication and Collaboration
3. Policies and Governance
4. Instruction
5. Resources

The Department of Education and the State Board of Education have adopted specific roles and responsibilities for superintendents in Ohio. You can find those standards by clicking HERE.
