• The primary purpose of the Dallas County R-I School Board of Education is to:
    • Clarify the district purpose
    • Connect with the community
    • Employ the Superintendent of Schools
    • Delegate authority
    • Monitor district performance
    • Take responsibility for themselves
     
    The Dallas County R-I School Board of Education does not:
    • Manage the day to day operation of the school district
    • Evaluate teachers or building principals
    • Give direct instructions to any school employee except the Superintendent of Schools, and then only when acting as a board of 7 members.
    The school board establishes policy that is then carried out by the Superintendent, with the assistance of other administration and staff.  You will find below a basic outline of the official chain of command within the Dallas County R-I School District.
