The Arlington School Board is currently looking for individuals to serve on three advisory councils: the Budget Advisory Council, the Advisory Council on Instruction and the Advisory Council on School Facilities and Capital Programs. The Board anticipates filling a number of vacancies on both councils for the 2011-12 school year. Applications are due by Wed, May 23.
The Advisory Council on Instruction (ACI) is made up of representatives from each school and certain community organizations to assist in reviewing the system-wide curriculum and instructional program and in developing recommendations for improvement. ACI has fourteen curriculum based/focused advisory committees that report and make recommendations to the council and the School Board. ACI committee applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the fall for committees that are not at their capacity. Additional information about the Advisory Council on Instruction and a link to the application form for the instructional program committees is available on the APS website.
The Budget Advisory Council (BAC) makes recommendations on policies and practices related to the presentation and preparation of the operating budget and the financial management of the school system. The Board will appoint new members to two-year terms to fill an estimated five vacancies on the Council. The application form for the BAC is available online.
The Advisory Council on School Facilities and Capital Programs (FAC) assists the School Board in the continuous, systematic review of school facilities and the annual and long-range Capital Improvement Program. The Board anticipates filling three vacancies on the Council for next fall. The duration of the appointment is two years. The application form for the FAC is available on the web.
