The Albemarle County School Board is accepting applications from county residents who are interested in serving their community as a member of the Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee.
The Superintendent will be appointing two individuals to serve on the Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee as superintendent appointees.
Term of office is two years.
The Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee is responsible for developing capital improvement program recommendations for the Superintendent. Committee members must reside in the magisterial district they represent, with the exception of the at-large seat, which can be held by any resident of the county.
Among the issues, the committee will research, review and make recommendations on school program capacity; enrollment and projections; transportation and operating efficiencies related to facilities planning; creative financing and construction strategies; scope of renovations; school closures and new schools; student accommodation planning; and the division’s requirements for innovative learning environments to accommodate its 21st century instructional model and associated technology resources.
The importance of this work is heightened by the county’s continuing enrollment growth trend and by facilities that, in some cases, have not been modernized in decades.
Applicants should have an interest in or experience with school facilities and capital improvement program planning; demographics and economics; elementary, middle and high school programs and needs; public outreach and communication; and/or municipal design and construction. Members are expected to interact and communicate with the School Board and the public through work sessions and community and focus group meetings.
