The Board of Education of Harford County, appointed by the Governor, is the policy-making body for the
Harford County Public
Schools. The school system is under the day-to-day oversight of the Superintendent of Schools who is
for both the instructional and support functions of the system. A Chief Administrative Officer works with
the Superintendent to provide direct leadership for non-instructional functions of the school system. A
Instructional Leadership Team (CILT) provides overall guidance for classroom instruction. Each school has
a School Improvement Team made up of representatives from various areas of the school and its community in
finding ways to improve the essential mission of the school system – student achievement.
