2023 Community Advisory Group

The Bellevue School District has a long history of using Community Advisory Groups to engage with community members to provide opportunities for student, family, staff and community feedback and input on various issues facing the District. Community Advisory Groups are typically established by the Superintendent but may also be appointed by the School Board.

Every effort is made to ensure diverse and broad representation of the community (students, families, community members and staff), and these groups make recommendations to the Superintendent. Policy 4110 (PDF) and Procedure 4110P (PDF) provides operational guidance for these groups. Students, family members, community members and staff are encouraged to express their interest in serving on one or more of our community advisory groups by completing the Community Advisory Group application form.


Superintendent Community Advisory Council (S-CAC)

The Bellevue School District Superintendent Community Advisory Council was formed in September 2020 to engage a diverse set of voices in district budgeting and other foundational decisions. The 2023-24 Superintendent Community Advisory Council (SCAC) will advise the Superintendent on engaging the community in a deep and authentic way and will gather, synthesize and share community input throughout the study. SCAC will use the Middle School Enrollment and Potential Consolidation Study Process as a case study to design an equity centered roadmap for community engagement. It is important to note that the Council will focus on the community engagement process and will not be making any recommendations related to middle school enrollment.
