The Montgomery County Board of Education is seeking adults and public secondary school students to serve on the Family Life and Human Development Advisory Committee. The advisory committee serves an important role in providing guidance and counsel to the Board of Education and the superintendent of schools in the development and review of new and revised policies, as well as other educational curricular issues during the school year.
Appointments are for two years for adults and one year (July through June) for students. Unless exempted by the Board, no member shall serve for more than two consecutive terms. Members serve without compensation. Committee meetings are typically held in the evening on the first Thursday of each month.
The Board of Education makes every effort to appoint advisory committees in which the membership is balanced by geographic area, race, ethnicity, gender, and range of viewpoints. All interested individuals are encouraged to apply. Non-profit organizations and associations also are invited to nominate individuals.
Applications must be received by close of business on Friday, May 13, 2005, for appointments to be made at the Board meeting on June 14, 2005.
