The School Advisory Committee has been established under public law 95-651 and guidelines established by DoDEA. The committee consists of parents and educators, as well as representatives of the military community and the school administration. The purpose of the School Advisory Committee is to advise the principal on school policies, instructional programs, staffing as it relates to instructional resources, program evaluation, student standards of conduct, school meal programs, and other concerns that are brought to the committee by parents, educators, and the community.
