City’s Education and Youth Commissions Seek Members

Rockville’s two newest commissions — one for education, the other for youth — are recruiting members.

The Education Commission was created by the Mayor and Council to support the city’s students. While the commission has not yet been appointed, an interest meeting in September reviewed the ordinance creating the commission, commission responsibilities and requirements, and how to become a member.

The commission is intended to maintain and grow collaborative relationships among the county’s board of education, Montgomery County Public Schools, private and nonprofit schools, Montgomery College, parent-teacher associations, private and nonprofit school boards, home-school communities, and providers of early child care and education programs in the Rockville community.

The 11-member commission will include seven parents or guardians, with four representing public education and three representing private, parochial and home schooling; and three educational professionals. Those 10 members will serve for two years. One member will be a student, who will serve for one year.

The Youth Commission, comprised of 16- to 21-year-olds who live or attend high school or Montgomery College in the city, will develop recommendations for the Mayor and Council about programs, policies and legislation to promote the health and well-being of young adults by identifying, monitoring and evaluating youth services, programs, and activities offered in Rockville and surrounding areas.

Five members of the 11-member Youth Commission will be appointed for two-year terms and six members for one-year terms.
