Committees

School Board members serve on a variety of committees. See below for a schedule of dates, times, and locations.  

There are two main types of committees: Board Standing Committees and District Standing Committees.  
 
  • Board Standing Committees are developed to focus on particular administrative areas within the school district, with a subset of Board members serving on each committee. Finance and Policy are the only two Board Standing Committees.
  • District Standing Committees also focus upon various administrative areas in the school district but may also include members of the community serving in an advisory capacity along with administrators and School Board members. The District Standing Committees include the Assessment Committee, Education Committee, and Communications Advisory Committee. The work previously conducted as part of the Safety & Operations and Wellness Committees will be incorporated into the Finance Committee of the Whole and Education Committee of the Whole, respectively. 
For the 2022-23 School Year, both the Education Committee and the Finance Committee will become “Committees of the Whole.” This means that the meetings will take place before the entire School Board as part of the work session each month. There will also be some months when one or the other of these committees will meet in its traditional format on the third Tuesday of the month. Dates, times and locations will continue to be advertised so that you can remain up to date with the changes and be involved in these discussions.
 
At certain times, special committees may be created by the Board for a specific assignment. These special committees will be appointed by the Board and terminated upon completion of their assignments or by a vote of the Board. These committees may be reactivated, if necessary. 
 
As they become available, agendas and notes will be posted on BoardDocs.
