Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the make-up, organizational structure, and operational aspects of school advisory committees as well as to identify their contributions to local educational programs as reported by principals and advisory committee chairpersons. This study also reports differences in the perceptions of school principals and advisory committee chairpersons as to the role and functions of school advisory committees. Research questions relating to make-up, organizational structure, operational aspects, and contributions of advisory committees were analyzed. Conclusions: It was concluded that advisory committees are predominately female, as are their chairpersons. Committees usually meet monthly at the school during the evenings. Most committees do not have a constitution and by-laws. School principals and advisory committee chairpersons bad significant differences in perceptions regarding the role and functions of school advisory committees. Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties' respondents had significantly different perceptions regarding the role and functions of school advisory committees. Chairpersons reported that the advisory committees had made contributions in the areas of school safety, maintenance and improvement of the school plant, community and race relations, and articulation between schools. School principals reported that advisory committees had made contributions in the areas of preparation of the school budget, preparation of the annual report of school progress, community and race relations, school safety, and determination of school goals.
