Citizen's Advisory Committee - The Citizen's Advisory Committee is an officially constituted advisory board to the Board of Education of Germantown Hills District #69. The Committee assists the Board in goals and projects, which will provide the best possible education for the District #69 students. While C.A.C. recommendations and studies are not binding on the Board of Education or Administration, their work is well received and the District has adopted many of their recommendations. There can be up to 15 members on the committee in addition to a School board member and the Superintendent. Members serve a two year term and the committee seeks to get a cross-section of the District (i.e. retired persons, pre-school parents, high school parents). In addition to attending meetings, C.A.C. members may be asked to do some committee work outside of the regular meetings.
