Chapter 3357:15-2 Delegation to the President

3357:15-2-01 Delegation to the president.

(A) All board authority delegated to staff is delegated through the president, so that all authority and accountability of staff, as far as the board is concerned, is considered to be the authority and accountability of the president.

(B) The board will direct the president to achieve certain results through the establishment of "Ends" policies. The board will limit the latitude the president may exercise in practices, methods, conduct, and other "means" through establishment of executive limitations policies.

(C) As long as the president uses any reasonable interpretation of the board's "Ends" and executive limitations policies, the president is authorized to establish all administrative policies, make all decisions, take all actions, establish all practices, and develop all activities.

(D) The board may change its "Ends" and executive limitations policies. However, as long as a policy is in effect, the board will respect and support the president's decisions that conform to that policy.

(E) Only decisions of the board acting as a body are binding upon the president. The president is accountable to the full board.

(1) Decisions or instructions of individual board members, officers, or committees are not binding on the president except in rare instances when the board has specifically authorized such exercise of authority.

(2) If board members or committees request information or assistance without board authorization, the president can refuse such requests which require, in the president's judgment, a material amount of staff time or funds or is disruptive.

(F) The president shall apply to the board for a waiver of a board policy if the president deems a waiver is in the best interest of the college.

3357:15-2-03 Monitoring presidential performance.

(A) Organizational performance against board policies on "Ends" and on executive limitations is a primary factor in monitoring presidential performance against board policies on "Ends" and on executive limitations. The board will monitor performance in a manner as to have systematic assurance of policy compliance, including accomplishments of "Ends".

(B) The purpose of monitoring is simply to determine the degree to which board policies are being fulfilled. Information which does not do this will not be considered to be monitoring. Monitoring will be done in a way to permit the board to use most of its time to create the future rather than review the past.

(C) A given policy may be monitored in one or more of three ways:

(1) Internal reports: Disclosure of compliance information to the board from the president. Internal reports include:

(a) Institutional data collection.

(b) Community surveys.

(c) Placement data.

(d) Assessment of student learning.

(e) State-mandated accountability data.

(f) Financial reports.

(2) Direct board inspection: discovery of compliance information by a board member, a committee, or the board as a whole. This is an inspection of documents, activities, or circumstances directed by the board which allows a test of policy compliance.

(D) Policies may be monitored by any method at any time, except each "Ends" and executive limitations policy will be monitored by the board at regularly scheduled times pursuant to an agreed method.
