Primary Purpose

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.
