Citizen Advisory Committees   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees recognizes that citizen advisory committees enable the Board to better understand the beliefs, attitudes and opinions held by the community.

The Board may establish citizen advisory committees to consider school problems and issues as the need arises or when required by law. Such committees shall serve in a strictly advisory capacity; they may make recommendations regarding Board policy, but their actions shall not be binding on the Board. The Board may dissolve any advisory committees not required by law at any time.

Advisory committees should include representation from all affected parties. With Board approval, the Superintendent/Principal or designee may appoint committee members.

Within budget allocations, the Superintendent/Principal 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.
