The Encinitas Union School District has several advisory committees which include members of the school community and district staff. The following are current advisory committees in EUSD:
Citizens Oversight Committee
The Citizens Oversight Committee oversees how the Proposition P (passed in 2010) bond funds are spent in the district. The bond money will benefit EUSD facilities and will assist in modernizing classrooms, renovating facilities, providing technology tools for students and teachers, providing green energy efficiency such as solar energy, and developing the district’s Farm Lab.

Community Advisory Committee (CAC)
A Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is made up of parents, educators and community members who are involved in special education. The CAC of the North Coast Consortium for Special Education (NCCSE) provides meetings and special events throughout the year and advises the superintendents of the 14 school districts about special education services. Each meeting includes information on a special education topic, resources for families and opportunities to meet with other parents to exchange resources, information and ideas.
