The Board may authorize the establishment of committees from among its membership as it finds it necessary to study operations in specific areas and to make recommendations for Board action.

All committees will be appointed by the Board president. The Board president and the Superintendent will serve as ex-officio members of all committees.

The functions of committees will ordinarily be fact-finding, deliberative and advisory, and their reports will be made to the Board for discussion and action. All committee appointments will be for no longer than necessary to discharge the completion of their assignment.

Notes: Include in this category statements on committees made up of school board members (but not advisory committees to the Board).

If school board policy permits standing committees, the current standing committees could be included in the policy, and regulations may be needed on their duties and operations. Or, the duties of specific committees sometimes are included as an informational document, coded BCE-E.
