The Policy Committee is a standing committee of the Board of Education charged with reviewing existing policies and recommending changes where necessary, and also with proposing new policies for consideration by the Board. The Committee is advisory only, and all recommendations must be debated and voted upon by the Board itself.
The Committee is composed of four members: three voting Board members who each serve a one-year term, from which group is elected a chairperson, and the non-voting Superintendent of Schools. During the Committee’s review process, it may also call upon other members of the District staff or administration for input on specific policies, but these individuals have no vote. All meetings are open to the public.
For the 2015-16 school year, Policy Committee members include Board members Leslie Juby, Mike McCormick, and Mary Stith (Chairperson); and Superintendent Kent Mutchler. Policy Committee meeting agendas are typically made available the Thursday prior to a meeting on BoardBook. Packets of information for a committee meeting are typically made available to the public on the day of a meeting on BoardBook.
The Policy Committee typically meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:15 p.m. at Williamsburg Elementary School, 1812 Williamsburg Avenue.
