Joint Operating Committee

The Dauphin County Technical School (DCTS) is governed by a legal document entitled the Articles of Agreement approved by each of the seven member districts – Central Dauphin, Derry Township, Halifax Area, Harrisburg, Lower Dauphin, Middletown Area, and Susquehanna Township. The Articles of Agreement create a Joint Operating Committee (JOC), which is composed of two school board representatives from each of our seven member districts. At the December meeting of each school district, two members are elected to the JOC. From those members, new officers for the upcoming year are also elected at the DCTS reorganizational meeting in December. The Joint Operating Committee meets monthly, usually the second Wednesday at 7:00 p.m., in the Cafe of Dauphin County Technical School to transact school business and to take action on other items in a manner identical to that of a traditional school district.

Board meetings are held on Wednesday nights beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Cafeteria of Dauphin County Technical School, unless otherwise announced and advertised.
