The Advisory Board provides advice and consultation to staff of the Center for Community Schools regarding strategic planning, budgeting, advocacy, certification of community schools, funding criteria for planning and implementation grants, evaluation criteria, communications, and data analysis.
The Advisory Board consists of community partners who have registered their school to become a UCF-Certified Community Partnership School and who are involved in planning or implementation projects with the center. The Advisory Board includes one member from each project site and representatives from school districts, universities, health care providers and not-for-profit lead organizations. The Advisory Board also recruits up to three at-large members with an interest in education, child and family services, or health care, and one member experienced in working with Florida foundations.
Meetings are scheduled as needed but no less than once per quarter and may be in person or via teleconference. An agenda and any materials to be reviewed are sent to all participants at least one week prior to each meeting.
