Committee Assignments

  • The Board of Education directors serve on various committees that meet monthly, quarterly or annually. Committee work assists the Board and the District in finding solutions and resources to assist in current and/or future issues as well as educating the public on the programs and services provided to students. Board members are asked to serve on committees for one school year, after which the rotation will change to a new board member.
