Posted by Melvin Edwards on 5/27/2021

The Board of Education is now accepting applications for 16 openings on the Executive Committee of its countywide Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC), a 32-member panel that provides input and advice on specific issues surrounding education throughout the county.

The panel consists of two representatives from each of the 13 high school clusters, one representing elementary schools and one representing secondary schools; two at-large representatives; a military representative; and three representatives appointed by other parent groups in the county. Members, who must be residents of Anne Arundel County, serve two-year terms with an option for a third year if they so desire and are approved by the Board.

The following seats are currently open:

  • Annapolis cluster, elementary representative
  • Arundel cluster, elementary representative
  • Broadneck cluster, elementary and secondary representatives
  • Crofton cluster, elementary and secondary representatives
  • Glen Burnie cluster, secondary representative
  • Meade cluster, secondary representative
  • North County cluster, elementary representative
  • Northeast cluster, secondary representative
  • Old Mill cluster, elementary and secondary representatives
  • South River cluster, secondary representative
  • Southern cluster, elementary representative
  • At-large countywide representative
  • Military countywide representative

Applications, which can be found here, must be received at the Board of Education by 4 p.m. on June 14, 2021. At a subsequent meeting, the Board will appoint representatives to these positions.

The committee is required to meet at least four times a year, but typically meets seven times annually. Meetings are generally held at the Parham Building, located at 2644 Riva Road in Annapolis. The meetings and membership in the CAC are open to anyone, regardless of whether they have children in AACPS or not.
