Agenda Item Summary: The School Board has several advisory committees that support the work of the Division. Advisory committees provide expertise, facilitate community input, and utilize multiple sources of information to advise the Board on areas for continued growth and improvement. The School Board benefits from its partnerships with the community, particularly the experience and insight provided by its volunteer committees. It is essential for the Board to assess the
processes, goals and support required by its advisory committees to keep them functioning and thriving.

The Ad Hoc School Board Advisory Support Committee has reached out to School Board Advisory Committees to invite committee leadership to Board Meetings or Work Sessions during November for discussion and feedback of each advisory committee’s work and processes. The Athletic Hall of Fame and Special Education Advisory Committees are invited to attend the November 4, 2021 Special Called School Board Meeting.
Background: The School Board appoints parents, community members, students and staff who bring a unique perspective on specific topics to its advisory committees. The committees meet
throughout the school year and each provides to the School Board a Scope of Work and Annual Report.

In March 2021, the School Board voted to form the Ad Hoc School Board Advisory Support Committee and appointed Board Members Jacinta Greene, Margaret Lorber, Michelle Rief and Heather Thornton to serve on the committee. The committee was tasked with developing a scope of work and goals in order to provide ongoing support and guidance to advisory committees by overseeing the implementation of these goals.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends the School Board review information provided by the School Board Advisory Committees.
