Facilitator: William Decker, Chief Administrator
Purpose: The Superintendents Advisory Committee meets with the Chief Administrator each month, October through May, for an hour prior to the regular monthly Superintendents Meeting. The agenda is generated by adding any issues that members of the Advisory Committee submit. Issues submitted by Committee members are usually topics about which they would like to have some preliminary discussion before taking to the larger group. We also ask the Advisory Committee to act on requests from outside organizations that want to make a presentation to the superintendents. The Committee decides whether a recommendation should be taken to the whole group of Superintendents or if the topic is presented for information only. The Advisory Committee also helps determine the focus of the Superintendents Professional Development program each year. The Chief Administrator distributes minutes of these meetings first to the Advisory Committee for approval and then copies are sent to all the area Superintendents.
Membership: Each year at the first meeting of the AEA 9 Superintendents (in September), a ballot is distributed and each superintendent “votes” for one of the superintendents in their category to serve on the Chief Administrator’s Superintendents Advisory Committee. Click here to see the 14-15 ballot. The categories are based on student enrollments and were determined several years ago, by then Chief Administrator, Glenn Pelecky, as he first established the advisory structure for the Agency.
In addition to the five representatives selected by the superintendents, the Chair and Vice-Chair of the group serve as ex officio members of the Advisory Committee. Officers of the Superintendents group are also elected by the group at the last meeting of the year in May to serve for the next school year.
