Parent Position Applications Accepted through November 16, 2019
Applications are now available for Maryland residents interested in serving as a designated parent member on the State Board of Education, as vetted through Maryland PTA. Maryland PTA is excited to be a part of this process as we are the second state in the nation to have such an honor; the first being Massachusetts PTA.
Maryland PTA also recognizes that not all parent advocates work through local, council or the state PTA. Hence, parents who are not members of PTA are encouraged to apply as well. Furthermore, we also encourage new parents of public school students who are in pre-kindergarten or kindergarten to apply.
In addition to the vetting process, all persons seeking to serve on a state Board must also apply via the Governor's Appointments Office at https://govappointments.maryland.gov/ and https://govapps.md.gov/appointments/apply/
Applicants must fill out the MDPTA application for nomination posted below.
