TEMPORARY ADMINISTRATIVE ARRANGEMENTS

I. The Talbot County Board of Education recognizes that there are times when it is necessary to have

temporary administrative arrangements; therefore, the Superintendent is authorized to appoint an

Acting Superintendent to serve for specified periods of time during his/her temporary absence from

duty. A temporary absence is defined as a vacation period, attendance at out-of-county conferences

or meetings, and/or other periods when the Superintendent would be out of immediate contact or

presence in the county.

II. When so appointed, the Acting Superintendent will assume all duties which are the responsibility of

the Superintendent of Schools, with particular emphasis on emergency and day-to-day decision

making. The Acting Superintendent will not be expected to deal with matters requiring long-term

planning or preparation unless specifically so assigned by the Superintendent. The Acting

Superintendent will take special care to keep the Board informed as to any departure from normal

routine.

III. In the event of a vacancy in the Office of Superintendent of Schools, or in the event of

Incapacitation of the Superintendent, the responsibility for the appointment of an Acting

Superintendent rests with the Board.

IV. When the Principal of a school is unavailable to the assigned building or site or an area within that

building or site, or is otherwise engaged in some other school function, an Assistant Principal or

Lead Teacher is authorized to serve as “Acting Principal” in matters of student and public control

and will assume all duties which are the responsibility of the Principal. Each Principal is also

authorized to appoint an Acting Principal to serve for specified periods of time during his/her

temporary absence from duty.

V. A temporary absence is defined as a vacation period, attendance at out-of-school conferences or

meetings, and/or any other periods when the Principal would be out of immediate contact or

presence in the school. When so appointed, the Acting Principal will assume all duties which are

the responsibility of the Principal, with particular emphasis on emergency and day-to-day decision

making. The Acting Principal will not be expected to deal with matters requiring long-term

planning or preparation unless specifically so assigned by the Principal.

VI. In the event of a vacancy in the Office of Principal, or in the event of incapacitation of the Principal,
