The process to begin either one of these starts with contacting your local county superintendent of schools. Every county has a superintendent of schools or a designee. Every county has a superintendent of schools, either part time or full time.
The Board of County Commissioners may eliminate this position (NDCC 15.1-11-02) and assign the duties to a designee. Should this be the case, a "Assignment of Statutory Duties" form SFN 52749 will need to be completed and submitted to the Office of School Finance and Organization. This form is available by calling (701) 328-3291.
