School District 54 is looking for community members who would be interested in serving on its District Citizens' Advisory Committee beginning in the fall of 2012.
The District Citizens' Advisory Committee is a school board committee composed of staff members, parents, representatives of various governmental, community and business organizations, and members of the community-at-large.
The board established this committee to increase communication and provide citizen involvement at the school and district levels. DCAC offers members an opportunity to offer input on district topics and promote education and community involvement.
For example, during the 2011-12 school year, DCAC provided feedback on the proposed junior high health materials.
DCAC member responsibilities include attending monthly meetings, which are at 9 a.m. the second Thursday of the month during the school year, providing input to the school board on district topics and sharing information with one's constituency.
Applications for DCAC membership can be submitted by May 15 to: Sherry Douglas, board coordinator, at the district office, 524 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg, IL 60194.
For information about DCAC or to receive an application, contact Douglas at (847) 357-5038 or email SherryDouglas@sd54.org. The application is also available online at www.sd54.org/committees.
