District Level Advisory Committees

  • Shakopee Public Schools invites and encourages community involvement in its mission to ensure academic excellence for all learners. Each year parents, staff, and community members work together on advisory committees to enhance the programs, activities, opportunities and environment necessary for learning. The following list offers a few details about the opportunities to get involved. If you have an interest in a particular committee's work, please get in touch with the contact person listed.
