    The Board of Education recognizes that it may be necessary from time to time to authorize advisory committees for the purpose of enlisting opinions and counsel of the general public.  Such committees shall be appointed by the Board of Education.

    The Board of Education shall appoint one or more committees, to visit every school or department at least once annually, and report on their conditions at the next regular meeting of the Board.
