| February 13, 2022, 01:31 PM

High school juniors in good academic standing can get more information on becoming the 2022-2023 Student Member of the Board of Education (SMOB) of Anne Arundel County during a virtual Information Night scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, via Google Meet.  The meeting link will be posted on the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) website, www.aacps.org/crasc.

This informational meeting is for all interested students to learn about the process of nomination, campaigning, election, and appointment. The Expectations of Office will also be discussed at this information session.

Anne Arundel County’s student member on the Board of Education is the only one in the nation on a local board who has full voting rights. The SMOB is elected by members of the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) and appointed by the Governor.

The nomination process for the 2022-2023 seat opens on February 24, 2022, and concludes at 4 p.m. on March 16, 2022. Nomination forms should be emailed to the Office of Student Leadership at [email protected]. No nomination forms will be accepted after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
