Queens Borough President Melinda Katz is looking to appoint 2 parents to Community Education Council 26. The Community Education Council meets one time a month in the evening to talk about education policies and to pick and choose which schools get capital funding from the School Construction Authority for school construction needs such as a new school addition/extension, school electrical upgrades, upgrades to the gym, science lab, auditorium, playground, science labs, cafeteria, library and more. If chosen you would serve for 2 years. The requirement is that you must live in the school district. As the Borough President appointee you will be in constant contact with the Queens Borough President’s office keeping the Borough President informed of concerns and needs in school district 26. The Community Education Council covers only elementary and middle schools.
Other responsibilities include:
