Serving on District Committees
Parent Involvement Through District & Board Meetings
For parents who have the time and desire to commit to an active role with a districtwide focus on building a dynamic public school environment, several opportunities are available. Contact the School Board Office for more information about these opportunities.
- Ad Hoc Committees are created periodically by the board for the purpose of studying specific concerns, such as reading or the dropout rate. Trustees appoint parents from their individual areas to serve on these committees as needed.
