Baltimore County Area Education Advisory Councils seek student members

TOWSON, MD—Rising high school juniors and seniors are encouraged to apply to serve on the Area Education Advisory Councils of Baltimore County Public Schools, officials announced on Monday.

The Board of Education of Baltimore County has education advisory councils in each of the school system’s five geographic and administrative areas – southwest, northwest, central, northeast, and southeast.

Board leaders explain that area education advisory councils exist to improve the quality of education in Baltimore County and to strengthen the relationship between the school system and the community by serving as informed advisors to the Board on public school issues and by promoting interest and involvement in the school system.

Each council can have up to two students as members, and this year, all the councils are seeking additional student members.

“This is yet another great leadership opportunity for our students, an opportunity to lend their voices to strengthening our school system,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “Our goal is that these advisory councils should reflect the breadth of diversity that is Team BCPS.”

Students interested in serving should send a letter of intent and resume directly to the advisory council that represents their community. Contact information can be found on the advisory council’s online brochure. To serve on an education advisory council, students must be enrolled in good standing in a high school in the respective geographic area.
