School Board Application Process

Overview

As a result of the recent education reform law that was enacted in Prince George’s County (Maryland House of Delegates Bill 1107), the County Executive is now required to appoint members to the Board of Education whenever there is a vacancy.  If the vacancy is the result of an elected board member leaving office, the County Executive’s appointee must reside in the School Board district where the vacancy occurred.  Below is the process that residents should follow in order to be considered by the County Executive to fill the vacancy.

Interested  applicants must:

  • Be a registered voter in the State of Maryland
  • Reside in the vacant School Board (Look up your school board district)

  • An ability to work as contributing part of a team and build consensus around complex topics
