District Advisory Committees

In District 181, we are grateful for the service of committee members. Committees provide an opportunity for the critical collaboration, discussion, and idea sharing that results in school and district improvement. Please click the applicable committee page link to access specific committee webpages with overviews of the committee work, agendas, minutes, and resources. Board Committees (Finance, Facilities, and Academic Success) post their agendas and minutes via BoardDocs.

Committee Meetings to be held Virtually

On March 16, an executive order regarding provisions to the Open Meetings Act was released. More details can be found on page 3 of this document: COVID-19 Executive Order. The provision allows that this meeting be conducted virtually (by web/phone conference). On June 3, the Governor issued an Executive Order that extended the order until June 27.
