Advisory Council Information

Advisory Council Members

A School Advisory Council is comprised of 5 to 13 members with the principal serving in an ex-officio capacity and as the secretary of the Council.  Advisory Councils serve schools in an advisory capacity and act as a liaison between the Board of Education and the citizenry.  Members are selected by principals from a pool of applicants at each school, and appointed by the Board of Education for one-year terms.  

Advisory Council Applications Available

The Buncombe County Board of Education has a sincere commitment to the concept of citizen involvement in our schools. To facilitate such involvement, the Board of Education has established a structure of School Advisory Councils at each school, comprised of between 5-13 members, whose purpose is to provide informed advice to school leaders and/or the Board itself. Councils might discuss and advise on such matters as human relations, school facilities, school activities, community/Board of Education relations, and/or other matters related to the individual schools.  School Advisory Councils meet a minimum of four times each year, ideally at times as convenient to as many members as possible. Advisory Council members must reside in the school attendance area in which they serve, and are appointed for one year terms.
If you would like to be considered for a position on our School Advisory Council, please contact the school office.  Applications are also available in English, Spanish and Russian on the Board of Education home page or at the link listed below:
