School Board Invites Applicants to Advisory Committee

The San Marino Unified School District Board of Education is inviting applications to fill seven vacancies on the District’s Academics Advisory Committee.
The committee’s mission is to support and advise the board, pursuant to the board’s direction, by researching and evaluating policies and programs that optimize the TK-12 student academic experience. The committee consists of those who are willing to volunteer their time and expertise for the benefit of San Marino students, including parents of current or former students, alumni and teachers.
In addition, the committee includes ex-officio representatives from the Board of Education, the superintendent’s office and SMHS teachers. The committee’s focus areas for the 2017-18 school year were: science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), homework policy, and college/career readiness. The committee’s focus areas for the 2018-19 school year will be set by the board in August.
Committee members shall be residents of the district, employed within District boundaries, or have a student enrolled in the district. Members serve a three-year term and attend quarterly meetings on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. during the school year and monthly sub-committee meetings at 3 p.m. Members may also serve on ad hoc subcommittees related to the committee’s focus areas.
People interested in serving during the 2018-21 school years should complete the online Advisory Committee Application (smusd.us) outlining their backgrounds and any special interests or skills that they believe will contribute to the Committee’s mission. Applications must be received by the Superintendent’s Office no later than Friday, Aug. 10, at 4 p.m. Questions or submissions may be emailed to Superintendent@smusd.us. Applications will be considered by the Board of Education during its Sept. 11 meeting, and successful applicants will be notified by email thereafter.
