    2.2    The Superintendent is neither obligated nor expected to follow the directions or instructions of individual members, officers or committees unless the Board has specifically delegated such exercise of authority.

    2.3.    Should the Superintendent determine that an information request received from an individual member or from a committee is unreasonable, disruptive or requires a material amount of staff time, the Superintendent is expected to ask the committee or the member to refer such requests to the full Board for authorization.
