Local school board members have the opportunity to become a member of the Commissioner’s Local School Board Members Advisory Council.

The council meets to discuss how KDE initiatives and decisions made at the state level are affecting school boards and districts throughout Kentucky. The role of local school board members is important to the work the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) is doing and we need board members’ feedback to better understand your perspective.

The council will meet four times in a calendar year. The first meeting will be in mid-to-late October. Members will serve staggered one-year terms with half of the council serving a two-year term with this appointment.

Those who are interested in serving should submit a short narrative on why they would like to be a part of the council along with a resume/vitae. This information should be submitted to:

Dr. Tommy Floyd

Chief of Staff

Kentucky Department of Education

500 Mero St., 1st floor CPT

Frankfort, KY 40601

The information may also be e-mailed to Dr. Floyd at tommy.floyd@education.ky.gov. All materials should be received by close of business Tuesday, September 24.

Any questions concerning the council can be directed to Dr. Floyd at the e-mail above or by phone at (502) 564-3141.  (9/6/13)
