Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) is seeking a parent representative (PR) to serve on the Board Policy Review Committee (BPRC) for 2020. The BPRC was established as a Board of Education committee to assist the Board in its thinking about District policies. The Committee discusses policy and makes recommendations to the Board. The PR should be familiar with policies and Board operations and will provide parent/community perspective during BPRC meetings.
BPRC meetings typically take place once a month, on Friday mornings, from 8:30 until 10:00 at the District Office (see schedule below). The PR should expect to spend 2-5 hours per month reading the various policies proposed for approval by the BPRC. In-person meeting attendance is optimal, though in certain circumstances with advance notice, participation may be arranged by phone conference.
To be considered for appointment to the Committee, please email Amanda Bark, Executive Assistant to General Counsel, by December 31, 2019 and describe any special qualifications or abilities you may have that would help you fulfill the PR role. The District will consider and approve the PR appointment by January 10, 2020.
More information on the charge of BPRC can be found on its committee page. Thank you for your interest!
