Calling All Jupiter Residents: Apply to Serve on Jupiter's New Education Committee

Calling All Jupiter Residents: Apply to Serve on Jupiter's New Education Committee
For Jupiter Residents:
At its special meeting on September 20, the Jupiter Town Council approved a resolution to establish an Education Committee within the Town's Boards and Committees. The purpose of the newly established committee is to provide information and recommendations to the Town Council regarding school capacity, school renovations and construction as it pertains to the public schools in Jupiter. The Committee may also provide information regarding the availability of school-age after-care and summer programs, and evaluate alternatives that might be available should there be a gap in services offered.

Membership & Meetings:  The Committee will be composed of seven members - one member to be appointed by each member of the Council, two at-large members, and two alternate members who will be appointed by a majority of the full Council. Members must be residents of the Town of Jupiter and have an interest in education. A parent of a student who attends a public school within the Town of Jupiter may serve on the Committee, but current educators within the Town are not permitted to serve due to the potential for conflicts of interest where members may have a close affiliation with a particular school or program. The Committee will meet on a quarterly basis or as needed for a term of two years, unless the term is extended by the Town Council.
If you are interested in volunteering as a member of the Education committee, please complete the online application.  Please have your applications in by October 22, 2018, for the November 2018 appointments, any applications received after this date will be considered for the next appointment cycle. Applications are accepted throughout the year.

Upon appointment, all Town of Jupiter Board and Committee members are required to take the Palm Beach County Code of Ethics Training prior to serving.
