RISD needs community council members

Rockdale ISD has openings for one community representative and one business representative to serve on the elementary Campus Educational Council; one parent representative to serve on the junior high Campus Educational Council; one parent representative to serve on the high school Campus Educational Council, according to assistant superintendent for instruction, Pam Kaufmann. Representatives from these groups will be selected to serve on the Campus Educational Councils by the principals and other Council members.

Parent representatives must have students enrolled on the campus for which they apply. Community representat ives must reside in RISD, be at least 18 years old and cannot be the parent of a student currently enrolled in the district. Business representatives must own or operate a business, but the business does not have to be located in RISD. Parent, community and business representatives cannot be employees of RISD.

Applications can be picked up or requested from the elementary, intermediate, junior high or high school office. The deadline for submitting applications is Monday, Oct. 7.

Campus and District Educational Councils serve as advisory groups to the principals and Superintendent, but have no regulatory powers.

“ This is an excellent opportunity to serve the school district. Our Counci ls play an instrumental role in our school improvement process. We hope that many interested persons apply,” Kaufmann said.
