  • Provide for administration, staff program, financing, housing and transportation
  • Consider and approve contracts with the KSEA

The KSED Executive Board is comprised of at least two representative Superintendents from each member county. The Executive Board serves as the advisory body to the Governing Board. The Executive Board meets on a monthly basis. Duties of Executive Board include:

  • Expend funds within limits as provided in the adopted budget
  • Contract for services
  • Certify all payments of the Joint Agreement be made
  • Bill each member school district for its share of the cost of the programs and administration
  • Employ all staff except the Executive Director.
  • Provide methods and charges whereby KSED member districts may contract for support services such as psychology, speech, social work, etc.
  • Discipline, reduce force, and otherwise terminate the employment of certified staff, professional, and non-professional educational support staff.
