Citizen Advisory Committees
The Board of Education recognizes that citizen advisory committees enable the board to understand better the interests and concerns of the community. The board shall establish citizen advisory committees as the need arises or as required by law. The purposes of any such committees shall be clearly defined and aligned to the district's vision and goals.

With board approval, the superintendent or designee may appoint committee members. The superintendent or designee may establish advisory committees, which shall report to him/her in accordance with law, board policy, and administrative regulation.
Citizen advisory committees shall serve in a strictly advisory capacity; they may make recommendations, but their actions shall not be binding on the board. The membership of citizen advisory committees should reflect the diversity of the community and represent a diversity of viewpoints.
The board may dissolve any advisory committee not required by law when the committee has fulfilled its duties or at any time the board determines it necessary.
The superintendent or designee shall provide training and information as necessary to enable committee members to understand the basic administrative structure, program processes, and goals of the committee.
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.
