Superintendents communicate policy to schools and the public, and they lead the evaluation of schools through the Quality Review. All superintendents perform statutory duties for each school, including appointing principals in district schools, acting as rating officer for principals in the district, approving principal and teacher tenure decisions, and approving school budgets.
They also support communities by communicating with District Leadership Teams (DLTs), Presidents’ Councils, and parent associations, liaising with Community Education Councils (CECs) and the Citywide Council of High Schools (CCHS), and supervising District and Borough Family Advocates.
