The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is an advisory group to the Board of Education of Cecil County, the policy-making body for the public schools, and will be convened as needed to address a purpose established by the Board President or CAC Chairperson on consensus of the Board. The CAC serves as an instrument of this Board with responsibility to research, discuss, advise, and advocate on behalf of the Board. The Board recognizes that a variety of perspectives will be helpful.
CAC is responsible directly to the Board and will meet with the Board, the Superintendent, or staff members designated by the Superintendent as the need arises. The role of the CAC will include:
- Advising the Board and providing feedback from its point of view.
- Assisting the school system in effective communications between the public and the Board.
- Serving as advocates for the public schools.
Meetings are open to the public.
