Two Modifications to Section 44-3 of Montgomery County Code
On behalf of the Interagency Coordinating Board for the Community Use of Public
Facilities, I am requesting that you introduce a bill
to
modify two
parts
of Section
44-3
ofMontgomery
County Code (Schools and Camps):
44-3(b) 2
(B)
and
(C) -
Non Voting Members - Language Update
The language modification would remove references to the Montgomery County Association
of Secondary School Principals and Elementary School Administrators Association, both of which were
subsumed by the Montgomery County Association ofAdministrators and Principals (MCAAP) as part of a
reorganization. MCAAP is the organization that represents all administrators and principals in Montgomery
County Public Schools and has the responsibility of nominating two of the non-voting members on the
Interagency Coordinating Board.
44-3(b) 3 - Voting Membership - Ability to designate alternates
This
Bill authorizes certain members
oftha
ICB
(the
Chief Administrative Officer, the
Superintendent of Schools, the President of Montgomery College, and Maryland-National Capital Park
and Planning Commission) to each appoint a person to serve in that member's absence
as
an alternate
member of the Board.
After extended discussion and approval of Resolution No.
11-001,
the ICB has requested the
ability to designate alternates for the members listed above. As a result of scheduling conflicts and
unforeseen emergencies, some members of the IeB are not available to attend all meetings. This change will
ensure a quorum at all meetings in order
to
effectively conduct business and decide policy matters with
interagency representation. This modification
is
consistent with how
W
ASA addresses board attendance.
Thank you for your consideration.
