Citizen Advisory Committees   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that citizen advisory committees enable both citizens and educators to better understand the attitudes and opinions held in the school and community.

As the need arises, the Board may establish citizen advisory committees to consider school problems, needs and issues. Advisory committees shall serve in a strictly advisory capacity and shall not act as policy-making bodies.

Committee members shall represent a cross section of qualified people throughout the district, except in those cases where a committee is established to address the needs of a particular segment of the school community. With Board approval, the Superintendent may appoint committee members.

Citizen advisory committees established by Board action shall provide public notice of their meetings and conduct such meetings in accordance with the state open meetings laws for such committees. All major conclusions and recommendations made by advisory committees shall be made available to the public in writing.

(cf. 9130 - Committees)

Administrative Advisory Committees

The Superintendent or designee may establish citizen advisory committees to advise the Superintendent or designee.

The Superintendent or designee shall inform the Board when such committees are established and shall describe their charges, size, term of office, and membership. The Superintendent or designee shall inform the Board of the persons appointed to such committees and any changes in committee membership or charge.

The Superintendent or designee shall provide the Board with a final report of each committee's accomplishments and shall provide summary reports and appraisals of administrative advisory committees as requested by the Board.
