The North Allegheny School District relies on various advisory committees to counsel it as one means of discerning the needs and desires of the North Allegheny School District and its residents. The central purpose of all advisory committees is to contribute to the educational program by conducting studies, identifying problems, and developing recommendations that will enhance the effectiveness of the decision-making process. The ultimate authority to make decisions continues to reside in the powers and duties of the School Board as imposed by law.

    The Citizens’ Advisory Committee shall

    1. Provide two-way communications between the citizens and the Board for the benefit of the school community.
    2. Inform the Board of the views of the citizens on matters of current interest.
    3. Provide information, opinions, and recommendations which would be helpful to the Board.
    4. Enable the Board to draw upon the resources of the community in making studies of various issues, programs, and concerns within the District.

    The CAC typically meets five times throughout the school year. For more information on the Citizens’ Advisory Committee, please contact Ahlam Weidman at 412-369-5419 or aweidman@northallegheny.org
