Selection of Community Members
Once established, the School Organizational Team will have the option of selecting one or more community representatives to serve as non-voting advisory members. Community members can add a unique perspective and create a bridge between the school and what is important to students outside the school. A leader in the community may have contact with many students, families, and other community residents and therefore be able to share a broad view of the community’s needs. They also bring valuable skills that can help with school organization, management, and budgeting. They may even be a resource for other community connections that could benefit students and families.
As a School Organizational Team, think about members of your community who could add value to your team. If your school has existing community partnerships, you may want to consider representatives from these organizations as members of your team.
