Board Committee and Liaisons

  • Board Committee Assignments

    Every January the Board holds an organization meeting to elect officers and set committees and appointments. There are four standing committees that meet periodically to study specific issues, work on special projects and make recommendations to the board as a whole.

    • Finance, Facilities, and Long-Range Planning
      This committee meets with the superintendent and finance director to discuss key finance items and budget planning as well as district facility needs and planning projects.

    • Policy
      One of the primary responsibilities of a school board is to set policy. These policies dictate how a school district will operate and ensure the district operates within legal boundaries. The Board Policy Committee reviews policies and recommends them to the full board for review, discussion, and approval.

    • Public Relations and Community Engagement
      The Public Relations/Community Engagement Committee works to effectively engage stakeholders to build relationships and advance strategic goals.

    • Superintendent/Executive
