33-000 ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL POSITIONS (POLICY) All administrative supervisory positions in the college system are established initially by the Board. It is the intent of the Board to activate a sufficient number of such positions to promote the attainment of the college's goals. In each case, the Board will approve the broad purpose and function of the positions in harmony with Board's goals and federal regulations and to delegate to the President the task of writing, or causing to be written, a job description for the position. The Board wishes the President to maintain a comprehensive, coordinated set of job descriptions for all such positions so as to promote efficiency and economy in the staff's operations. Administrative positions at Oglala Lakota College consist of the President, the Vice President for Instruction, and the Vice President for the Business Office. The Human Resources Director maintains all job descriptions including those for administrators. The President shall have the power to act in situations where emergency action must be taken within the college system and where the Board has provided no guides for administrative action. It shall be the duty of the President to inform the Board promptly of such action and the need for policy. The Board encourages the President to seek its counsel with respect to needed decisions based upon policy when the subject is controversial or emotion laden. Whenever the President must take action in such sensitive matters before consulting the Board, he is invited to discuss with the Board chairman, and as many members as possible, the basis for his decision.
