What is the school advisory council?
WD Williams Elementary School Advisory Council is comprised of five
members, with the principal serving in an ex-officio capacity and as the
secretary who keeps the minutes. Minutes are submitted to the
Superintendent’s office and forwarded to Board members.
Advisory Council serves our school in an advisory capacity and act as a
liaison between the Board of Education and the citizenry.
Council discusses and advises on such matters as human relations, school
facilities, school activities, community/Board of Education relations,
and/or other matters related to our school.
Advice to the Board
can be given in the form of minutes maintained at the meetings; by
direct communication to Board members; individually or collectively, by
correspondence or telephone; or by a written report presented at a
regularly scheduled Board meeting.
Our Advisory Council elects,
at the first meeting, a chairman and a vice-chairman. Meetings are held
at times convenient to all members to the extent possible, with a
minimum of four meetings per year required.
Why have a school advisory council?
of the Board of Education have a sincere commitment to the concept of
citizen involvement in the Buncombe County Schools. We believe that the
people want good schools, that they have reasonable ideas about the
things the schools should do, and that they are willing to help the
schools attain established goals. A purpose of the advisory structure is
to provide informed advice to the school authorities.
Who serves and for how long?
