"Info YOU Need To Know"
Parent Advisory Committee ...
All principals have received the e-mail below from Candace McQueen, Commissioner for the State Department of Education ....
We are currently seeking applications for the Tennessee Department of Education’s inaugural Parent Advisory Council. Because you are regularly engaged with parents in your local communities, you are in a unique position to support this exciting new initiative. I am encouraging every principal in Tennessee to identify one parent from their school who is a strong candidate to apply for the council.
Council members will regularly share feedback on current issues in education and the state's strategies for parent-focused communications, as well as provide parent perspective on the local implementation of state initiatives. Additionally, council members will share important information with other parents in their communities.
Parent Advisory Council members will serve one-year terms, which will include two in-person meetings in Nashville and several phone conferences and email conversations throughout the year. Membership on the council is a volunteer position, but travel to and from the meetings will be reimbursed.
You can support the application process by doing the following:
- Identify one parent at your school who would be a strong candidate for the council.
- Send the online application link and a letter of recommendation (as a PDF document) to the parent.
- Ensure parent completes the online application by Dec. 18; they should upload your letter of recommendation to their online application.
The online application is available here, and the application deadline is Dec. 18. Once the parent completes their online application, they will be considered for a position on the council. Applicants will be notified of their application status in early January, and selected members will convene for their first meeting in February.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to closely engage parents in our work.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please let me know.
