Help Influence School Policy
HCPSS is looking for stakeholders to help improve certain policies.
The Howard County Public School System wants help making crucial decisions about school policies about social media, residency requirements and more.
Howard County residents can have input by serving on policy development/revision committees. These volunteer groups consider and make recommendations to the superintendent when policies need to be changed.
According to a statement by the Howard County School Department, committee service requires about four to five meetings during each review process.
The topics to be discussed sill include: technology; security; social media; prevention and control of communicable diseases; sustainability; acceptable use of technology; enrollment, residency, student assignment and admission to Pre-K and Kindergarten; wellness through nutrition and physical activity; discipline; parent, family, and community involvement.
If interested, send letters of interest and resumes by August 30, 2012, to Fran Albert, Howard County Public School System, Office of Policy/Charter Schools, 10910 Clarksville Pike, Ellicott City, MD 21042
