Olivero, James L.
This publication is intended to aid school-level educational administrators in working with citizen advisory committees. After a brief discussion of the rationale for advisory committees, it focuses in turn on 1) functions of advisory committees, 2) ways to determine philosophical positions of agreement and disagreement among advisory committee participants, 3) ways to get people involved in advisory committees, 4) suggestions for developing a decision making model for advisory committees, 5) analyses of process skills needed to help advisory committees function effectively, 6) procedures for communicating advisory committee decisions, and 7) analyses of constraints on the effectiveness of advisory committees. The appendix presents an exercise that simulates the role of the citizen advisory committee in school budget formation. (JG)
