The Lindbergh Board of Education is inviting Lindbergh Schools residents to serve on one of five board advisory committees, which are designed to allow board members to seek input and advice on key issues, and promote widespread involvement and participation throughout the district.

Lindbergh’s Board of Education advisory committees include Finance; Teaching and Learning; Student Life; Technology; and Facilities Planning.

Each board advisory committee includes community members, parents, board members and district staff members. Committee members will be appointed prior to the start of the school year and will serve two-year terms.

All committee members must be patrons of the Lindbergh district. Board advisory committees meet approximately once a month and report to the Board of Education.

For more information about Lindbergh board advisory committees, or to apply to serve on a committee, visit go.lindberghschools.ws/BOE.

The deadline to apply is Friday, July 10.

The committees began in 2018, with some members on two-year terms and other members on three-year terms. So half the seats are vacant with terms up this summer.

Board of Education members also serve on each advisory committee, and they will also change up their memberships.

Then-board President Karen Schuster said at a June 9 board workshop, “We are also kind of reorganizing our roles on the board,” and would notify the district in July which committees its members will serve on.
