This document contains the results of a national survey designed to determine the composition and location of permanent citizens advisory committees operating within the nation's school districts. The 52 district-wide, continuing citizens advisory bodies identified by 290 responding school systems are listed alphabetically by State. The following information is given for each committee listed: (1) Name of committee, (2) year established, (3) origin of committee, (4) number of members, (5) occupational representation, (6) selection of members, (7) internal committees, (8) frequency of meetings, (9) financial support, (10) method of operation, (11) functions, and (12) additional comments. The summary presents a breakdown of the total sample, based on the categories listed above. The appendix lists professional advisory committees, dissolved permanent committees, temporary committees, and sample guidelines to assist those who may be involved in formulating a citizens advisory committee. Twenty selected references on the formulation and operation of citizens advisory committees are included in the bibliography. (JH)
