The main purpose of the study was to determine the division of executive authority and the responsibility for its use between the superintendent and his board of education in small southwestern Iowa towns. This problem was found to involve four facets: 1. the determination of the executive authority which the board of education delegates to the superintendent of schools; 2. the determination of the amount of executive authority which the board of education shares with the superintendent of schools; 3. the determination of the authority which the board of education retains; 4. the determination of the amount of responsibility for the use of executive authority which the board of education assigns the superintendent of schools as the results of the executive authority which it delegates to him or shares with him.
