The Citizen Advisory Committee (2016-2017) to the Calvert County School Board is a group of community citizens who meet throughout the school year to address pressing system-wide school issues. Over the last several years, the Committee has tackled the county’s Academic Achievement Gap issues, After School Transportation, and Proper Student Nutrition to name a few efforts.
This year the issues to study were Minority and Special Education Student Teachers hires and retention. At the onset, the issues seemed to be a question of intent and intensity of effort, however after a number of presentations on exactly how the school system is taking on thee challenging issues- the picture has become clear.
Remnant Center of Excellence’s CEO and Chairman, Col (Retired) Will Wiggins presents the findings of the Citizen Advisory Committee year-long study on minority hiring in the Calvert County Public School district to the Board of Education.
