TRUMBULL — The Board of Education needs a total of five volunteers to serve in an advisory capacity on its policy committee.

The board needs three parents or guardians of Trumbull public school students and two community members, who must be Trumbull residents. The new committee members will serve from November of this year until August of 2024. The committee meets about six times a year at 5:30 p.m. at the Long Hill Administration building, and last met Oct. 18.

According to the Board of Education web site, the policy committee exists to "encourage involvement of the community in improving existing policy and proposing new policy."

The committee is typically made up of members of the Trumbull Administrators' Assocation, the Trumbull Education Association, parents/guardians, members of the community, and students. There are also Board of Education members and an administrative designee — Assistant Superintendent of Schools Susan Iwanicki — on the committee.

"Creation of policy is one of the most critical responsibilities of the Board of Education, and the Board encourages involvement of the community in improving existing policy and proposing new policy," Iwannicki said in a news release.

Those who are interested in the open positions must apply by 5 p.m. Nov. 4. Details about the policy committee and the application form are available at t http://www.trumbullps.org/boe/pac.html.
