District Advisory Committee (DAC) Elections: All campus principals must make a transparent call for nominees to determine one classroom teacher and one campus-based professional (non-teacher) employee who want to run in the districtwide election to serve on the DAC.  The nomination window is Monday, Oct. 29 to Friday, Nov. 9.  Charter/Contract campuses are ineligible. Any eligible campus-based professional may be nominated by another campus-based professional or may self-nominate, by notifying the principal, to be included in the campus-based election process.  Campus nominees must consent to be included on the district ballot.

Campuses and/or departments that have the highest employee involvement or highest employee giving will be invited to join the District Scholarship Selection Committee, receive naming rights to a scholarship and present the scholarship with the Interim Superintendent.
