In the absence of the superintendent, it shall be the responsibility of the other administrators to assume the superintendent's duties.  The succession of authority to the superintendent shall be in this order:


            1.     High School Principal

            2.     Elementary Principal

            3.     2 Guidance Counselors and Athletic Director


If the absence of the superintendent is temporary, the successor shall assume only those duties and responsibilities of the superintendent that require immediate action.  If the board determines the absence of the superintendent will be a lengthy one, the board shall appoint an acting superintendent to assume the responsibilities of the superintendent.  The successor shall assume the duties when the successor learns of the superintendent's absence or when assigned by the superintendent or the board.


References to "superintendent" in this policy manual shall mean the "superintendent or the superintendent's designee" unless otherwise stated in the board policy.
