School division issues "Call to Action" for
Citizens' Advisory Committee members

The School Board of the City of Virginia Beach is looking for parents, grandparents, community members and staff to serve as members of the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC), the Community Advisory Committee for Gifted Education (CAC) and the General Advisory Council for Technical and Career Education.

The general purpose of each committee is to advise the School Board of the educational needs of students with disabilities, gifted students and those students enrolled in technical and career education programs. In addition, members are asked to provide input on school division priorities and strategies related to the committee's focus area and submit periodic reports and recommendations to the School Board.

Terms of service for newly-appointed advisory committee members will begin July 1, 2018. SEAC and CAC members meet monthly throughout the school year. The General Advisory Council for Technical and Career Education meets quarterly. To see specific duties and responsibilities of these citizen advisory committees and to learn more about terms of service, visit the Call to Action page on vbschools.com.

Those interested in serving as an advisory committee member must submit a completed application and letter of interest to the Clerk of the School Board by 5 p.m. Sunday, April 15. If an application is being submitted by U.S. Mail, it must be postmarked on or before April 15, 2018.

Questions about the application or selection process should be directed to Dianne Alexander, clerk of the School Board, by calling 757-263-1016 or by email at Dianne.alexander@vbschools.com.
