  • The committee shall consist of a minimum of 15 members. Members shall serve two-year terms. The committee membership shall represent, to the extent possible, the diversity of the District community and staff.

    Purpose

The committee may make recommendations and offer advice, but they shall not be asked to make final decisions nor allocate District resources. Advisory committee reports will be provided to the Board on an annual basis or when the committee’s work has been completed. The committee’s recommendations, either budgetary or programmatic, will be referred by the Board to the Superintendent for study and for incorporation into the District improvement plan and budget where appropriate.
