Sherwood Cluster Meeting With Your Board of Education

Please see the attached flyer for information on the meeting below.

You are cordially invited to attend the Sherwood Cluster Meeting with your Board of Education

Where? Belmont Elementary School
19528 Olney Mill Road

When? Thursday, March 26, 2015 from 7-9 pm

Hosted by your MCCPTA Sherwood Cluster Coordinator and Your Local Sherwood Cluster PTAs

This unique opportunity brings our BOE Members to our own backyard only once every three or four years.
They visit to get to better know our community and the issues of importance to us, to enable us to get to know
them better and to improve our understanding of current issues.

Having worked with the BOE over the past couple of years I can tell you they are a dedicated group of
individuals. They do this job for the love of our kids and schools and not for the meager paycheck. With that in
mind, please think of this as entertaining guests in your living room with good conversation and thoughtful
interaction. Let’s ask great questions and show them the Sherwood Cluster hospitality we are known for.

You may write your questions down in advance and e-mail them to your PTA President, you can submit them
in writing the night of the event, or you can ask in person.

Some topics that may come up are the overall Operating Budget (hiring of teachers and staff), the CIP budget
(building and construction funds), goals of our school system, policy for MCPS as a whole and the search for a
new Superintendent. Topics outside the BOE’s purview include: deciding on teacher assignments for individual
schools and classes, the number of class periods per day, and whether there is lunch before or after recess.

The BOE is an elected body of eight members, seven of whom serve four-year terms. The eighth is the
Student Member of the Board and is elected by middle and high school students to a one-year term. They meet
frequently to discuss issues of importance to the entire school district. BOE Members also advocate on our
behalf in Annapolis and in Rockville. They have a say in the Superintendent’s proposed Operating Budget and
the Capital Improvements Plan. All along the way there are opportunities for input from the community. And
your Sherwood Cluster has provided plenty of positive input of late.
I look forward to seeing you on the 26th!

Your Sherwood Cluster Coordinator,

Paul Geller

P.S. Plenty of parking will be available along Olney Mill Road. For the benefit of our neighbors and walkers
everywhere, kindly keep the sidewalks clear for pedestrians.
