Title

A Resolution Of The City Commission Of The City Of Hollywood, Florida, Appointing One (1) Student Alternate Member To The Education Advisory Committee.

 

 

Body

 

Staff Recommends:  Approval of attached Resolution.

 

 

Explanation:

On July 11, 2001, the City Commission passed and adopted Resolution No. R-2001-93, authorizing the creation of the Education Advisory Committee to obtain and review information regarding educational matters and support and promote quality education in order to make the educational opportunities in Hollywood the best available in the State of Florida.

 

Pursuant to Resolution No. R-2001-93, members must reside, work or attend public school in Hollywood, or be known for their countywide interest in education.  Further, persons of diverse perspectives shall be represented on the Education Advisory Committee, including parents of school-age or pre-school-age children, educators, business people, and persons with a background and knowledge in child development and/or education-related fields.

 

Resolution R-2001-93 was subsequently amended by resolutions R-2002-241, R-2003-144, R-2003-373, R-2004-203, R-2005-299, R-2007-421, and R-2009-188, R-2011-143, R-2012-186, R-2013-088, and R-2015-180 thereby establishing the current committee composition with ten (10) Members, four (4) Teacher Members, and two (2) Student Alternate Members.  The Student Alternate members fill in for any regular member or teacher member who is absent at a meeting.    

 

There is one (1) Student Alternate Member position vacant that has gone unfilled since the previous appointment cycle. This term expires June 30, 2018.

 

Emily Kriger has applied to fill the vacant Student Alternate position and she is qualified by virtue of her residency in Hollywood.  The Education Advisory Committee desires to fill the vacant position without further delay and asked staff to present this item to the City Commission for approval.
