Glenbard Township High School District 87
Administrative Procedure - Superintendent Committees
The Superintendent or designee creates Superintendent or administrative committees as deemed necessary, makes all appointments, and directs all activities. A Superintendent or administrative committee reports to the Superintendent or administrator who directs its activities. The Superintendent or designee should consult the Board Attorney (a) concerning whether any of these committees must comply with the Open Meetings Act (OMA), and/or (b) to receive guidance for ensuring that the meetings either comply with OMA requirements or do not trigger OMA. Unless otherwise indicated, the listed Superintendent or administrative committees are optional:
Title I Advisory Committee
This committee is required if the District receives or desires to receive Title I funds. See policy 6:170, Title I Programs; 20 U.S.C. §6312; 34 C.F.R. §§200.41, 200.50, and 200.52(a)(1); and 105 ILCS 5/2-3.25d (for Illinois requirements). The committee supports the development and implementation of the District’s Title I plan. Its activities may include, at the Superintendent or designee’s directive:
1. Facilitating the active involvement of parents/guardians in their children’s academic success by such activities as coordinating Title I parent-teacher conferences, providing information to help parents/guardians assist their children, coordinating volunteer or paid participation by parents/guardians in school activities, and establishing a process to respond to parents/guardians’ inquiries and recommendations.

Each committee listed below is required until its function has been fulfilled; each reports directly to the Superintendent or designee.
1. PERA joint committee. This mandatory committee develops a plan for incorporating data and indicators of student growth into the evaluation plan. The joint committee is “composed of equal representation selected by the district and its teachers, or where applicable, the exclusive bargaining representative of its teachers.” 105 ILCS 5/24A-4(b). If, within 180 calendar days of the committee’s first meeting, the committee does not reach agreement on the plan, the District must implement ISBE’s model evaluation plan with respect to the use of data and indicators on student growth. The amendment of an evaluation plan continues to be a mandatory subject of bargaining.

It is composed of individuals appointed by the Board and the teachers (or the exclusive bargaining representative of its teachers).
Concussion Oversight Team
The Concussion Oversight Team is required until its function has been fulfilled; it reports directly to the Superintendent or designee. State law requires the team to establish protocols for return-to-play and return-to-learn for students who have suffered a concussion or head injury during interscholastic athletic activities. See policy 7:305, Student Athlete Concussions and Head Injuries. 105 ILCS 5/22-80(d), added by P.A. 99-245; if approved by the House and signed by the Governor, SB219 will extend the effective date to the 2016-2017 school year.
