The Frederick County Board of Education is forming a Citizen Advisory Council (CAC). The Board established the CAC as a standing committee that will report directly to the Board and serve as a channel for public concerns, advice and information as identified by the Board. The CAC may also respond to specific requests for research, at the direction of the majority of the Board, and make recommendations on specific topics impacting educational decisions and FCPS programs.
“Public schools are strengthened when communities are actively engaged in the education process,” according to the Board of Education of Frederick County (Board) Policy 101. In support of this belief, the Board is seeking representatives to serve two- and three-year terms on a new Citizens Advisory Council (CAC).
To ensure broad representation, the Board will evaluate potential members on a variety of factors including: geographic residence, child’s grade level, areas of interest, and experience related to Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) programs and services, including but not limited to curriculum, special education, English language learning, world languages and advanced academic programs. Individuals without a child attending a Frederick County public school are also welcome to apply. The Board will select up to 25 individuals to serve on the Council.
Details and applicant requirements may be found in Policy 101.3: http://apps.fcps.org/dept/legal/101.pdf
