There was also on Technology Reference Card released in November for the Howard County Board of Education. Currently there are six candidates that have filed to run in this race (I expect many more between now and February). View the Reference Card here: CLICK HERE

Coming up in December:

I am planning to write updates to all of the scorecards that were completed in November. My plan for engagement reviews in December will focus on Twitter engagement (more details coming later on what metrics I will use). Another change coming in December is a change to the scoring matrix – a reduced emphasis on the total number of followers and an increased emphasis on trends in adding new followers since the previous evaluation will be used going forward. Extra credit (other social media outreach beyond Facebook and Twitter) will continued to be considered but only for candidates that list those social media links on their campaign websites.

Good luck to all of the candidates. I look forward to following all of your updates.
