Calvert Board of Education Seeks Citizen Advisory Committee Members
The Calvert County Board of Education is accepting applications for the 2016-2017 Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). Twenty-five members are appointed annually.
The CAC provides a means for taking an active role in public education. The committee reports directly to the Board of Education and serves in an advisory capacity. It conducts studies in areas of concern to the Board, provides community insight into pending policies and Board decisions, and discusses a variety of issues affecting school system operations. The work of the committee is done in accordance with Policy #1210 and the corresponding procedures.
The committee meets from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the fourth Monday of each month during the school year.
Applicants must be residents of Calvert County and may not be full- or part-time employees of the school system.
The application is available on the Calvert County Public Schools website (www.calvertcounty.education) on the Board of Education tab. Completed applications are due by August 5, 2016. The Board will appoint members later that month.
