Citizens Advisory Committee

Our Citizens Advisory Committee is designed to keep administration and school board members informed with regard to community perspective, represent the interest of parents and the community in providing input on specific school issues, and to promote the maximum interaction between the district and the community and to raise community awareness of School Board decisions and policies.

Structure

The committee will comprise 30-40 Battle Ground School District community members with representatives ranging from business, municipal, and faith-based leaders to parents and senior citizens. Every effort is made to include individuals that represent different roles and geographic areas in the makeup of this group. Terms are three years long, and meetings take place on the second Thursday of the month from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., September-May. All meeting participants must comply with current state health and safety requirements for COVID-19. Childcare is provided for those who need it.

Because this is the first year of the group, applicants will be asked to serve either a 1, 2 or 3-year term to allow for continuity and so that about one-third of the committee is refreshed each year. After this initial committee selection, terms will all be three years.

The Citizens Advisory Committee provides a forum where each member may have a part in shaping the future of the educational process and environment as it is developed.
