- Audit and Finance Committee – reviews financial matters with the assistance of the superintendent and designated staff. Members are liaisons to the district Budget Advisory Council (BAC).
- Curriculum and Instruction Committee – works with the superintendent, director of teaching and learning, and others to review, study and, as requested, develop recommendations pertaining to what and how students are taught. Members are liaisons to the Curriculum and Instruction Advisory Council (CIAC) and the Gifted and Talented Advisory Council. (According to Administrative Regulation 201.6AR School Board Committee Descriptions, the GTAC liaison is to come from the Board Curriculum and Instruction Committee.).
- Legislative Committee – develops and promotes legislative efforts that support District 196 programs.
- Policy Review Committee – reviews new and revised School Board policies that would not logically be reviewed by another board committee before they are presented to the full board.
