School Board Advisory Committees
A number of advisory committees, made up largely of community member volunteers, help the school board tackle important issues.

While the ultimate authority to make decisions resides with the school board, these committees conduct studies, identify problems, and develop recommendations. The board can appoint committees to address specific short-term concerns or to provide counsel on ongoing issues affecting the district.
The advisory committees are an important part of the ongoing dialogue between the school district, school board and community.
Currently, there are seven School Board Advisory Committees:
- Audit Committee
- Career & Technical Education Advisory Committee
- Citizen Budget Review Committee
- Curriculum Advisory Committee
- Diversity Advisory Committee
- Legislative Committee
- Policy Review Committee
