Arlington Public Schools is inviting parents and community members to apply to serve as a member of the Arlington Pupil Services Advisory Committee (formerly Student Services Advisory Committee).
The advisory committee reviews the services offered by psychologists, social workers, substance abuse counselors, school counselors, and attendance specialists. The committee reports to the Advisory Council on Instruction (ACI) and makes recommendations for changes or improvements in services.
During the 2010-11 school year, the committee focused on anti-bullying initiatives, strategies for strengthening relationships between students, and the use of social media as a student-staff communication tool. More information can be found online.

If you would like to attend a committee meeting to see if the topics match your interests, the final meeting of the year is scheduled for Tue, June 19.
