COMING SOON: Parent Academy Real Talk: Getting to Know Our Board of Education Members
The HCPS Parent Academy Real Talk show is excited to launch a new monthly series, Getting to Know our Board Members. Each month, we will invite one or more members of the Board of Education of Harford County to sit down with Parent Academy's Mary Beth Stapleton to share their story - a little bit of their background and ties to the community, why they sought a position on the Board of Education, and what serving the students of Harford County means to them. Then, the featured Board member(s) will answer a few questions submitted directly from our community. Questions will be gathered ahead of each month's Board episode - be sure to follow the HCPS Parent Academy Facebook page so you don't miss an opportunity to submit your burning questions!
Here's the link to submit questions for the first episode, which will feature Board President Jansen Robinson and Board Vice President Rachel Gauthier:
Please share this information with your school communities.
