BOE Seeks Advisory Committee Members

 

 

Recruiting Board of Education Advisory Committee Members 

The Oswego Community Unit School District 308 Board of Education is seeking new members for its three advisory committees established to help determine the future direction of the district.

 

Each committee is comprised of residents, parents, employees and Board of Education members from School District 308. These committees evaluate current operations and develop recommendations for future improvements.

 

The monthly committee meetings take place in the early evenings for approximately two hours. All committee meetings are open to the public.

 

Ideal committee members are individuals with knowledge and/or experience in the committee area for which they apply. Committee members will be asked to serve staggered terms of either one or two years.

 

Although the committee can suggest recommendations for the superintendent to bring before the board, the board will not be bound by them.

 

Individuals interested in serving on one of the three advisory committees are asked to review the charge of each committee listed below and then complete the information form and submit it to the district.

 

Teaching & Learning Advisory Committee

This advisory committee will consider curriculum, staff development, student achievement and other similar topics to be recommended to the Board of Education.

 

Finance & Facilities Advisory Committee

This advisory committee considers district finances, operations and business practices that may be acted upon by the Board of Education.

 

Policy Development & Legislative Advisory Committee

This advisory committee reviews policies and oversees annual review cycles of Board policies, including student handbooks, to be recommended to the Board of Education.

This committee will work together as advocates for the district to discuss significant legislative issues related to education and provide input on these initiatives. This information will be provided to the Board of Education in an effort to establish open and consistent communication between the district and local, state and national elected officials.

 

Information forms for those interested in serving on a committee must be received by July 22, 2019. Information forms are available online or at the District 308 Administrative Center, 4175 Route 71, in Oswego.

 

Questions and completed forms can be directed to the board secretary Ursula Coan ucoan@sd308.org
