The Grand Island Public Schools Board of Education, when necessary, may appoint an advisory committee composed of patrons, students, staff, administrators, and board members.

An advisory committee is formed by board resolution that shall outline the duties and purpose of the committee. The committee is advisory in nature and has duty or responsibility specifically stated in the board resolution. The committee shall automatically dissolve upon the delivery of its final recommendation to the board or upon completion of the duties outlined in the board resolution. The board will receive the report of the committee for consideration. The board retains the authority to make a final decision on the issue. The committee will conduct its meetings as open meetings and a record of committee members present will be kept.

The method for selection of committee members shall be stated in the board resolution. When possible, and when the necessary expertise required allows, the committee members will be representative of the school district community and shall consider the various viewpoints on the issue.
