Tonight kicks off the day many of us have been looking for to since the election…a new HoCoBOE begins with Kirsten Coombs, Christina Delmont-Small, and Mavis Ellis being sworn in at the board meeting tonight.

The Howard County Board of Education will hold a regularly scheduled meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, December 5, 2016, in the Boardroom at the Department of Education, 10910 Clarksville Pike in Ellicott City.

The expectations are high for the new board members and the board as a whole going forward from today. A significant increase in communication with parents and the public at large, an immediate review of the issues related to the latest audit and improvements around the mold concerns and special education are just some of the issues that this new board will expected to address sooner rather than later. Many have been waiting for the “later” and we all hope it begins tonight.
I wish them all good luck…I may even tune in online for a bit to see how the first meeting goes tonight…and I will be sure to continue to write (good and bad) about what is going on with the BOE in the future.
