As noted in the policy, BPS recognizes that “community involvement is the backbone of BPS.” Therefore, we are seeking students, parents, educators, staff, and community member participation on Advisory Committees which will provide recommendations to the School Committee.
Advisory Committee members will represent a variety of community perspectives and are encouraged to solicit input from other community members and organizations. The primary charge of the Advisory Committees is to provide policy recommendations on specific areas as well as to inform the School Committee and Administration of issues brought forward by members of the community.
The Advisory Committees are strictly advisory; the School Committee will consider the Advisory Committee’s recommendations, along with other input and recommendations, in making final policy decisions. All committee members will serve one year terms, with the exception of facility members who will serve a two year term. All Advisory Committees will provide regular reports to the School Committee and will follow RI Open Meetings Laws: https://goo.gl/R3YcoK
