Baltimore County School Board Nominating Commission to be named

TOWSON, MD — Following the 2014 and 2017 Maryland General Assembly Sessions, the law concerning the composition and selection of the Board of Education of Baltimore County changed. Beginning in 2018, rather than the current 12-member fully appointed body, the Board will include both appointed and elected members.

In addition to seven elected members and one appointed student member, the Governor, in consultation with the County Executive, will appoint four at-large members from a list of nominees submitted by the Baltimore County School Board Nominating Commission, also created by the new laws. Of the Commission’s 19 members, the Governor will appoint one Commission member from each of the county’s eight legislative districts. In addition, the county executive will appoint one Commission member from the county at-large. Finally, each of 10 organizations specified in the laws will name one Commission member. Those organizations include The Teachers Association of Baltimore County; The Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce; The PTA Council of Baltimore County, Inc.; Towson University; The League of Women Voters of Baltimore County; The Baltimore County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People; The Baltimore County Public Schools’ Special Education Citizens’ Advisory Committee; The Baltimore County Student Councils; The Council of Administrative and Supervisory Employees; and The Education Support Personnel of Baltimore County.

Individuals seeking appointment to the Commission should express their interest to the office of the Governor, County Executive, or one of the 10 identified organizations. The Governor, County Executive, and specified organizations will name members of the School Board Nominating Commission by early November 2017.
