Administrative Directives

 

Administrative Directives provide division-wide information, procedures and directions for the administration of programs and policies of the East Cleveland City School District (ECCSD). They serve as a uniformly definitive reference for the implementation of such programs and policies. They also increase staff awareness and understanding of general administrative procedures and enhance district-wide communication of programs, policies and procedures of the ECCSD.

 

Administrative Directives for the 2020-2021 School Year

Purposes: 

  1. To provide division-wide information, procedures, and directions for the administration of programs and policies of the East Cleveland City School District. 
  2. To serve as a uniformly definitive reference for the implementation of such programs and policies.
  3. To increase staff awareness and understanding of general administrative procedures. 
  4. To enhance division-wide communication of programs, policies, and procedures of the East Cleveland City School District. 

The Process: 

  1. Administrative Directives will be issued through the CEO & Superintendent Office and circulated, in numerical sequence, to schools and offices within the district.
  2. All Administrative Directives will be sent electronically to schools, district offices, and posted on the East Cleveland City Schools website.
  3. Each Administrative Directive issued during the 2020-21 school year will be given a sequential number, beginning with No. 1. Directives issued during the previous years should be filed for reference. In some instances, those previous directives will be updated and re-issued during this school year. Note: Administrative Directives from the previous years remain in effect unless and until new or revised Administrative Directives are issued. They will remain valid if no changes need to be made.
  4. The CEO & Superintendent, members of the cabinet, directors, and supervisors will originate subjects and topics (as well as content) for Administrative Directives, provided: 
    1. the information or topic is of district-wide importance (examples: curriculum, instruction, staff development, budget, testing, administrative transfers, management, health, safety, etc.); 
    2. the information or topic requires staff members to follow specific directions and procedures; and 
    3. standard procedures need to be established or restated relative to the topic, information, program, or policy.
  5. Principals and central office administrators are advised to include periodic reviews and discussions of Administrative Directives on the agenda of staff meetings to increase district-wide understanding of the approved practices, procedures, and information addressed by the directives.
  6. School-based and central office staff members may suggest topics to be covered through the Administrative Directive process.
