The Board of Trustees has the power to create advisory committees for special purposes. The composition of all advisory committees shall be broadly representative of the community, and the residents of Uinta County School District Number One shall be encouraged to take an active part in school affairs by serving on such committees.
Appointments shall be made by the Board, the Board chairman, and/or the superintendent, as appropriate to the task at hand. In some cases, the Board of Trustees will adopt the committee structure and organization it deems appropriate to complete the specific assignment. In all cases, the function of the advisory committee shall be outlined to the committee members when they are appointed.
The Board of Trustees and the administration possess certain legal powers and duties, which cannot be delegated or surrendered to others. Therefore, committees shall not have authority to make policy decisions for the district, obligate the district financially, or exercise any authority not specifically delegated to them. All recommendations of an advisory committee must be submitted to the superintendent and/or the Board of Trustees for action.
The Board shall have the right and sole power to dissolve any of its advisory committees, and may exercise this power at any time during the life of any committee.
