As the name implies, school advisory teams are small groups of advisors who work together to service a specific group of students. These educational teams are made up of committed experts and parents that help deliver their breadth and depth of knowledge and experience for the development of students in Carson City.

Within the Carson City School District, there are four specific advisory teams including Gifted And Talented Education (GATE), Math, English Learners (EL) and English Language Arts (ELA). These advisory teams meet quarterly throughout the school year.

Community members, stakeholders, various school personnel, parents and in some cases students are sought to help these advisory teams gather feedback for future development and build practices to benefit the specific group of students.
