Board of Education Meeting with Student Leaders Postponed!

The Board of Education is rescheduling the December 1st Student Leaders Meeting with the Board of Education.

As you guys know, this is an unprecedented year with the issue of SMOB Voting Rights on the table. Unfortunately, the bill hearing date for the bill MC12-10 to expand the Student Member's vote and the annual December 1st Student Leaders Meeting coincided on the same date. This will be the only day of testimony given to these bills. As a result, the Board of Education will be rescheduling the student leaders meeting so the student leaders may attend this
bill hearing. The Board of Education has placed trust in us to show our support!

I encourage all our student leaders to make our voices heard loud and clear to the county and state delegation to attend the local hearing in Rockville (SSL Approved). It will be on December 1, 2009 - 7 PM at the 3rd Floor Hearing Room, Stella Werner Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Ave., Rockville (right next to the Courthouse and Rockville Town Center and near Richard Montgomery). Student leaders (former SMOBs and MCR Presidents) and even the Board of Education President will be testifying on the bill, and request that we show strong support for the bill!

If you cannot, for any reason make the meeting, please support the cause by contributing to the letter-writing campaign going on currently.

For those that would still like to make their voices heard on other issues, I will be having SMOB 2.0 Meetings at 850 Hungerford Dr., Rockville on:
  • Policy Meeting: Thursday December 3 (6-8 PM): For any school that wants to send a representative and discuss issues in a smaller setting
  • Town Hall: Wednesday December 16 (7-9 PM): For any student that wants to come
I hope to see you all there!
