FCPS Seeks Student Member to BOE

High school sophomores and juniors who attend Frederick County Public Schools may apply to serve as the 2011-12 Student Member of the Board of Education.  The nomination deadline is March 21, 2011 for the term beginning in July 2011.

The role of the student member is to bring a student viewpoint on educational issues to BOE meetings, generally held two evenings per month. The function is not to represent any particular special-interest group of students on an issue but rather to respect the diversity of students’ points of view, to improve communication between the student body, staff and BOE members and to inform students of policies and decisions executed by the BOE.

Interested sophomores and juniors should contact their student government advisor for a nomination packet.  Students may also access the application packet at http://sites.fcps.org/fcasc/node/24.  In addition, principals and student government advisors may nominate a student.  Completed applications are due March 21 by 4 p.m. to FCPS Social Studies Curriculum Specialist Michael Bunitsky, 191 South East Street, Frederick, MD  21701. 

Applicants must complete the entire student packet, including nomination form, letter of recommendation and four questions in paragraphs of no more than 250 words per question (not bulleted lists).

A selection panel including the current student member to the BOE, the Frederick County Association of Student Councils (FCASC) executive board and advisor, a middle school student government president and advisor, a high school student government president and advisor, and a high school principal will interview nominees on March 23.  The panel will forward the names of three finalists to the FCASC General Assembly to stand for election April 14.
