Academic Advisory Committee now accepting applications

Posted on 08/19/2022
Apply to be on the FHSD Academic Advisory Committee

The Francis Howell School District’s committees work year-round to support student learning. FHSD is looking for community members, parents, and staff to serve on our Academic Advisory Committee for the 2022-2023 school year. 

The District created the committee in 2021 with the goal to gather stakeholder input and feedback on the work of the academic department, primarily related to curriculum development. This committee provides input to guide decision-making in the areas of student learning such as curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development and regularly reviews data related to student learning progress.  The purpose of this committee is to gather staff and community input/feedback around the collective work of the Academic Department, primarily focused on, but not limited to, curriculum development. As new developments occur in various educational settings during the school year, this group is informed and updated on such changes.

This group of individuals will includes staff members, community members, and students representing different school and regions of the District. The group will also include representation from FHEA, the Board of Education, and a member of the curriculum department. 

In 2021, more than 150 staff and patrons who applied to be part of the committee! All applicants were blind scored on established criteria, meaning the names of applicants were hidden during the evaluation process. Those who weren’t selected last year are encouraged to apply again for the current selection process. 

Members of the department value various perspectives and are looking for a diverse group of stakeholders who are willing to collaborate, learn, and provide feedback on a monthly basis. Meetings will take place from 4:45-6:45 p.m., typically the Tuesday after a Board of Education meeting. Interested staff and community members should complete an application prior to August 29th. Selected participants will be notified by September 5th via email.
