District Advisory Committee

PURPOSE:

The Athens Board of Education (BOE) actively seeks the advice of community members through an advisory committee.  Studies clearly indicate that when parents and community members are involved, students achieve more. The BOE believes it is essential to work with the community to build trust and an effective two-way relationship so that their involvement is assured.  The advisory committee members are chosen by the BOE and advise the BOE on school related topics.  While the ultimate authority to make decisions resides with the school board, this committee conducts studies, identify problems, and develop recommendations.
