Board Committees and Membership
(as of the 2021-2022 school year)
Board policy BDB(LOCAL) Board Internal Organization – Internal Committees provides for the creation of internal committees to facilitate the efficient operation of the Board. Committees of the Board serve in a purely advisory role, with no power to take action or direct public business, which can only be done by a quorum of the Board at a public meeting. Committees are established by Board action and trustees are elected by their fellow Board members to serve on committees.
In addition to serving on internal Board committees, trustees also represent the Board on several District and community committees.
