The District is supported by the Board-appointed advisory and oversight committees listed below.
Community members are invited to apply for appointment and will be considered as positions become available. While application doesn’t guarantee appointment, having a list of interested individuals with subject-matter expertise or insights helps make the process more efficient. Applications may be submitted at any time. Regular attendance at scheduled committee meetings is expected of all appointed members.
The audit committee provides a practical means for the CRCSD Board of Education to obtain independent review and oversight of the District financial reporting processes, internal controls, and independent auditors.

The master facility planning oversight committee monitors and reports to the Board of Education the District’s compliance to the master facility plan.
