Citizen Advisory Committees
The Board of Trustees recognizes that citizen advisory committees enable both citizens and educators to better understand the beliefs, attitudes and opinions held by school and community members.
As the need arises, the Board may establish citizen advisory committees to consider district problems, needs and issues. Advisory committees shall serve in a strictly advisory capacity and shall not act as policy-making bodies. The Board shall have the sole power to dissolve any of its advisory committees and may exercise this power at any time.
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 or designee may appoint committee members.
Citizen advisory committees created by Board action shall provide public notice of their meetings and conduct these meetings in accordance with the Brown Act. The Superintendent or designee may create citizen advisory committees to advise the administration; such committees do not report to the Board and are not subject to open meeting laws.
