Although the deadline has passed for other positions, the Board of Education is still accepting applications for the Meade Cluster and military representative openings on the Executive Committee of its countywide Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). The group is a 30-member panel that provides input and advice on specific issues surrounding education throughout the county.
Applications, which can be found here, must be received at the Board of Education by the close of business on Friday, June 15, 2016.
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 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.
