The Board of Education is now accepting applications for openings on the Executive Committee of its countywide Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC), a 30-member panel that provides input and advice on specific issues surrounding education throughout the county.

The panel consists of two representatives from each of the 12 high school clusters, one representing elementary schools and one representing secondary schools, two at-large representatives, a military representative, and three representatives appointed by other parent groups in the county. Members serve two-year terms.

The following seats are currently open:

  • Chesapeake Cluster: elementary and secondary representative
  • Glen Burnie Cluster: elementary representative
  • Meade Cluster: secondary representative
  • Northeast Cluster: elementary representative
  • Old Mill Cluster: elementary representative
  • Severna Park Cluster: secondary representative
  • South River Cluster: elementary and secondary representative
  • Military representative

Applications, which can be found here, must be received at the Board of Education by the close of business on Friday, June 19, 2015. The Board will appoint representatives to these positions as well as confirm the representatives of the Anne Arundel County Council of PTAs, the Special Education Citizen Advisory Committee, and the Superintendent’s Parent Involvement Advisory Council, at a subsequent Board meeting.

Members may not serve more than two consecutive terms. The committee is required to meet at least four times a year, but has met monthly this year. Meetings are generally held at the Parham Building, located at 2644 Riva Road in Annapolis. The meetings and membership in the CAC are open to anyone, regardless of whether they have children in AACPS or not.
