State Advisory Vacancies
posted by: Megan | January 31, 2011, 09:02 am   

The State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education was formed in response to legislation passed in 2009.  Representatives from many entities from the public school community have been appointed to the Council either by the State Board of Education or the Commissioner of Education. Currently the Council has vacancies in two specific membership groups:  parents of children enrolled in a publicly funded school (preschool through higher education) and a representative of an organization that represents parents and students who advocate in the areas of equality and justice in education, racial justice for youth, and immigrant rights.  Please e-mail Sandra Searls for more information regarding membership vacancies.
