School Boards are governed by state law and must carry out that law. This responsibility includes establishing the policies by which local schools are governed. In addition, the Board is tasked with representing the public’s voice in public education and setting standards for achievement. Calvert County Board of Education members are elected for a four-year term. As representatives of their communities, school board members mirror the diverse democracies they serve. Local control of education through the Board of Education has made it possible for schools to enable students to fulfill their potential.
The Board holds two meetings per month except for January, June, July and August where only one meeting is held. The meetings are scheduled on Thursdays. The dates are set taking into consideration holidays and school closings. The calendar for the meetings can be found on the CCPS Website. There is an opportunity for public comments at the monthly business meeting. Tentative agendas for board meetings are available on the CCPS Website on the Monday prior to the scheduled meeting.
