District Advisory Council

  • The District Advisory Council (DAC) is a broad-based council that serves exclusively in an advisory role with noted exceptions (*). The council is charged with advising the Board of Trustees and District administration on district education-related issues. The committee is comprised of campus-based professional staff, district-level professional staff, parents, business representatives, and community representatives who serve staggered three-year terms. (Representatives may not serve more than two consecutive terms.)
