Participation Guidelines


The Warwick Board of School Directors committee system has been designed and implemented to encourage citizen participation in the consideration of the business and decisions affecting school district operations. This has been achieved by having community representatives serve on the Education, Building & Property, Finance & Legal, and Student Activities Committees.

Each of these committees is comprised of Board members, administrators, teachers, and citizens. This mix of individuals provides a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and opinions necessary to effectively review district issues.

The following guidelines are proposed for governing membership on Board/Community committees:

  1. Each committee will be chaired by a member of the Warwick Board of School Directors.
  2. Two members of the Warwick Board of School Directors will be appointed to each committee.
  3. One or two members of the professional staff will be appointed to each committee to serve for a period of three (3) years.
  4. Three to seven community members will be appointed to each committee to serve for a period of three (3) years.
  5. Two to three members of the administrative team will be appointed to each committee.
  6. Committee members absent from three consecutive meetings or four meetings without valid reasons during the period of one year will be asked to resign their committee assignments.
  7. All community representatives will be approved by the Board of School Directors

Citizen appointments to Board Committees will be arranged on a rotating basis in August of each year, providing for one-third of the committee to be replaced annually. Unfilled terms created by resignations will be filled by Board appointment.

As always, the Board Committees remain open to the public and may be attended by any member of the community or staff.
