Citizens Advisory Committees for the Board of Education
The Board of Education may create, from time to time, special advisory committees charged with the responsibility for investigating educational issues which, by virtue of their importance to society as a whole and the community in particular, have an impact on long-term growth and development of the schools of this district.
Committees are expected to report their study results and recommendations in writing to the Board of Education. Additionally, it may be desirable for committees to exchange views with the Board informally, from time to time, during their study. When a committee's final written report has been received, the Board of Education may review it with the committee members in a public meeting. Final action on committee recommendations rests with the Board of Education.
