J. W. Alvey Advisory Council

You are invited to join the Advisory Council at any time. The council meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. in the library. The Advisory Council's decisions influence much of what happens at your school. This volunteer body made up of staff and parents provides input on the school budget, helps formulate the Annual School Plan, and solicits your opinions on the yearly school survey. Through the parent survey, you get a chance to be involved in this decision making process.
