Applications Now Available for Special Board Committee to Develop Facility Plan


Tue, 01/26/2016 - 10:30am

Applications are now being accepted for membership on a Special Board Committee to Develop a Facility Plan. Five seats on the Special Committee are available for at large community members interested in serving. 

Submit an application via our webform here. 

The Special Board Committee will consist of two tiers. Tier One will consist of faculty and staff from the District, and its charge will be to identify needs for capacity and programming at the elementary, middle and high school levels.  Tier Two will consist of representatives from elected bodies of local government, the business community, and at large community members.

The charge of the Tier Two Committee is to review the educational recommendations from Tier One and, based on this information, provide recommendations to the Board of Education in the following areas:  location of facilities, collaborations/partnerships with other public entities in the Champaign Unit 4 District, and a finance/referendum schedule. 

All committee meetings will be open to the public and will be subject to the Open Meetings Act. The Board has stated its commitment to having representation that reflects the diversity of our community and there will be a concerted effort on their behalf to recruit applicants who support obtaining this goal. 

Applications are due by Friday, February 12, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.
