Maybe the headmaster issue could be solved like this:

The school meeting could elect a pro forma headmaster who signs all the
decisions made by the school meeting. And if a headmaster feels that
there is a decision which he can't sign despite of the school meeting's
vote, then the school meeting can look for a new, loyal headmaster.
