Superintendent Contracts

Legal Requirements

N.C. Gen. Stat. ß 115C-271(b) provides that school boards are to file a copy of the superintendent's contract with the State Board of Education before the person is eligible to hold that office.

We must also verify that the person hired as superintendent possesses valid credentials for that position. This verification is accomplished by use of the Certification of Election of Superintendent form.

Please submit this form and a copy of the superintendent's current contract, by regular mail, as an e-mail attachment to or by fax 919.807.3407.

If you need an accessible form, please contact Katie Cornetto at 919.807.3406 or
