The Howard County Public School Board of Education’s Community Advisory Council (CAC) is seeking nominees for its 2017/2018 Executive Committee. The Board of Education (BOE) established the Community Advisory Council under HCPSS Policy 2060 and Maryland education law as a standing committee which reports directly to the Board and serves as a channel for public concerns, advice, and information to help guide BOE decisions. The committee also receives from the community concerns, information, and inquiries about matters within the province of the Board and researches issues as appropriate. We are seeking nominees for the Chair, 1st Vice Chair, 2nd Vice Chair, Secretary and Policy Committee Chair.
As an Executive Committee member, you will be asked to lead a dedicated community of volunteers as the CAC participates in HCPSS Policy review. Success requires the ability to objectively and impartially represent and share broad-based majority and minority opinion on issues such as the school-year calendar, all policies under review, and budgeting with the Board of Education. Successful candidates should be reliable, be able to facilitate substantive discussions, and comfortable with public speaking. The leadership team should be committed to the integrity of the CAC, an incredibly important component of maintaining and improving the great public school education of Howard County.
If you are interested in serving in either of the following roles please respond on or before March 15, 2017. If you have questions regarding the roles, please reach to any member of the current Executive Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org and your questions will be forwarded to the appropriate person.
