and private kindergartens, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and other equivalent schools" and
to perform other duties stipulated in administrative regulations, on the Superintendent's request.

In addition, all the education community members in District Education Offices are striving towards the common educational goal of student development and overall improvement in quality of education.
