Job Alike Advisory Councils

DCIU hosts a wide variety of advisory councils made up of representatives from IU leadership, partner school districts in Delaware County, businesses and community organizations.

The goal of these councils is to share current information and best practices, resources, experiences, and knowledge in support of advancing the educational opportunities provided to the students of Delaware County. The meetings allow for open discussions and cultivate collaboration for the efficiency of operations and ongoing development of programs and services that benefit schools, administrators, and students across the county.

The advisory council members, who may be administrators, teachers, counselors, or other personnel, are assigned from their district to the group most closely aligned with their job responsibility and or area of interest or expertise. These councils are a service to Delaware County schools, designed to facilitate networking and collaboration among talented teams of professionals. The Advisory Councils are part of DCIU’s core services at no charge.
