Board of Directors Committees


2023-24 Excel BOD Advisory Committee List 

The primary purpose of all advisory committees to the Board is to contribute to the educational program of the school by conducting research, identifying problems, analyzing options, and developing recommendations or proposals to assist the Board in making decisions. The ultimate authority to make those decisions, however, will continue to be the Board’s as required by law.
