4110 Family and Community Advisory and Oversight Committees

It is the policy of the Seattle School Board to encourage participation by members of the community to advise the Superintendent and Board in school district decision-making processes. It is Board policy to facilitate engagement of those families and community members who have not historically been active or represented in decision-making by the district on Advisory and Oversight Committees. Families and community members can provide the Board and staff with valuable expertise, critical thinking and new perspectives, and can help alert the Superintendent and Board to issues of importance to the community. The process for selecting committee members must be inclusive, fair, consistent and transparent.  

The result must demonstrate equity as committee members should reflect the diversity of our students and families. 

The Superintendent is authorized to develop procedures for this policy, as necessary.
