A motion on the FAA work group that reads:

The MCCPTA Executive Board resolves that a work group consisting of 6 AVP’s or representatives, the CIP Co-Chairs and two Executive Board Officers will participate with the MCPS Division of Long Range Planning in developing “long-range educational facilities planning regulations” to implement the FAA-RA policy. Through this process the work group will publicly identify those portions of the policy they believe should remain policy. This work group will develop specific regulatory language to address provisions relating to public participation and other MCCPTA concerns. This work group will hold meetings throughout the County to further engage and solicit input from parents, PTAs and the general public. The MCCPTA members of this work group will keep the MCCPTA Executive Board informed throughout the process, and make specific recommendations as to what changes the Board of Education should make when they review Policy FAA.

A motion to change the date of the next executive board meeting from Oct. 6 to Sept. 29.

 

A motion to allow our Cultural Arts committee to work with the Cultural Arts chair for Anne Arundel County to co-moderate the PTArts listserv.
