Organization - Because of the Fine Arts program’s specialized characteristics, it is organized under two distinct chains of command. The Home campus chain of command and the District chain of command are separate but complementary systems.
The below groupings are provided to give a general idea of how the system operates. The key to our success has come from a spirit of cooperation with all administration to support our teachers and students together. *There are areas of overlapping interest and responsibility.
Home Campus - The home campus principal is the teacher’s primary supervisor, even though assistant directors report to head directors on a day-to-day basis. The following areas/items are primarily within the principal’s jurisdiction:
- Lesson Plans & Grade Books, Grading
- Primary appraiser (T-TESS)
- Activity or Sundry funds
- Building/room keys
- District/State required trainings
- PTA activities
