Carroll Accepting Committee Applications

Citizens interested in participating on a 2013-2014 Board Advisory Committee for the Carroll Independent School District have the opportunity to submit an application before the September 18 deadline.

The Carroll School Board invites interested parents and taxpayers to volunteer their time and expertise on the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC), the District Advisory Committee, or Campus Site-Based Decision-Making Committees.

Completed applications must be returned to the Superintendent’s Office, 2400 N. Carroll Avenue in Southlake by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18. Submitting an application does not necessarily guarantee participation.  Members of the SHAC must be accepted and voted into their positions by the Carroll School Board. The membership of some committees, like the District Advisory Committee and Campus Site-Based Committees, must comply with state law.

Several of the committees are chaired by members of the Carroll School Board. In addition to these committees, the Board also operates an Audit Committee, a Budget & Finance Committee, and a citizen’s Bond Advisory Committee, made up of citizens who were a part of the Long-Range Facility Planning Committee. Membership for the Audit and Budget & Finance Committees is determined every other year.
