Citizen Advisory Committees   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that citizens' advisory committees enable the Board to better understand the beliefs, attitudes and opinions held by the community.

The Board may establish citizens' advisory committees when required by law, to strengthen the effectiveness of district and school operations, or to enhance student learning. The purpose of any such committee shall be clearly defined and aligned to the district's vision, mission, and goals. The Board may dissolve any advisory committee not required by law when the committee has fulfilled its duties or at any time the Board deems it necessary.

The Superintendent or designee may establish advisory committees, which shall report to him/her in accordance with law, Board policy, and administrative regulation.

The membership of citizens' advisory committees should reflect the diversity of the community and represent a diversity of viewpoints.

The Superintendent or designee shall provide training and information, as necessary, to enable committee members to understand the goals of the committee and to fulfill their role as committee members.

Within budget allocations, the Superintendent or designee may approve requests for committee travel and may reimburse committee members for expenses at the same rates and under the same conditions as those provided for district employees.
