District Committees

There are many ways that employees, parents, and community members can be engaged, active partners in ensuring educational excellence in our school community. In addition to districtwide avenues for involvement, all of our schools look for parent or community engagement through parent-teacher groups and/or volunteers. For school-specific opportunities, please visit each school's volunteer page.

Calendar Committee

Annually, the Calendar Committee reviews the requirements for student contact days, gathers feedback from staff, students, and parents regarding proposed calendar options, and recommends an option(s) to the Board of Education for consideration of approval. This committee is comprised of at least one parent and staff member from each school.
