School District 54 is looking for community members who would be interested in serving on its District Citizens’ Advisory Committee (DCAC) or Advisory Council for District Initiatives (ACDI) beginning in the 2017-18 school year.
DCAC is a School Board committee composed of staff members, parents, community members and representatives of governmental agencies, community and business organizations. The Board established this committee to increase communication and provide citizen involvement at the district level. DCAC also offers members an opportunity to promote education and community involvement.
DCAC member responsibilities include attending monthly meetings (held at 9 a.m. on the second Thursday of the month during the school year), providing input to the School Board on district topics, and sharing information with one’s constituency.
ACDI is a source for strategic planning in District 54. This council acknowledges and supports ideas for instructional change before the ideas are presented to the School Board. ACDI serves as a channel of communication by encouraging new ideas and providing a framework for them to become a reality. ACDI members are involved in the planning of new, innovative ideas.
ACDI member responsibilities include attending monthly meetings on an as-needed basis (held on the third or fourth Monday of the month during the school year), sharing information with one’s constituency, assisting/mentoring others in fully developing instructional initiatives, and committing to three years of ACDI membership.
