Advisory Committees

There are a variety of ways for parents and community members to become involved in our schools, including participation on a district advisory committee.  Advisory committees are facilitated by district administrators and consist of staff, parents and community members who work together to provide recommendations to the superintendent and school board in a variety of areas.  Some advisory committees are on-going, and some may only meet for a short time for a specific purpose.
