Subject: [FAM_EDLEVY] City seeking applicants for Families and Education Levy Oversight Committee
Council and Mayor seeking eight qualified individuals for Families and Education Levy Oversight Committee
The City of Seattle is seeking candidates to fill eight citizen positions on the Families and Education Levy Oversight Committee. Approved by Seattle voters on November 8, the $232 million Levy will be effective from 2012 through 2018, providing funding for school readiness and early learning; academic achievement in elementary, middle and high schools; guidance and related support for college and career preparation; and student health services.
The Levy Oversight Committee (LOC) was established by Ordinance 123567 to make recommendations on the design and funding of Levy programs and to monitor the progress of Levy programs in meeting Levy outcomes and goals. In addition to making recommendations on the Levy Implementation and Evaluation Plan and the Partnership Agreement with Seattle Public Schools, the LOC reviews outcomes and indicators of progress, and reviews and advises on program evaluation, program changes, and proposed expenditures and allocations of Levy funds, including the annual Levy budget.
Citizen members serve three-year terms and may be reappointed. In order to stagger the terms, two members will serve single-year terms initially and three will serve two-year terms initially. Citizen members should have an interest in education policy and professional, personal or research experience associated with the growth and development of children, including their academic success. The City also seeks candidates who have an understanding of and experience working with new immigrants and refugees, communities of color, Native American tribes, children of different abilities, and others who have historically not been academically successful in traditional education programs.
Applicants should live or work in Seattle. Candidates must disclose if they may have a potential conflict of interest due to a relationship with an entity that receives or competes for funding under the ordinance.
If interested in applying to serve, please send a resume and letter of interest, and a completed potential conflict of interest form, to Holly Miller by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at 206-233-5142 before 8:00 a.m., Monday, December 5, 2011.
Conflict of interest form: http://www.seattle.gov/council/burgess/attachments/2011-11disclosure_form.doc
The Mayor and City Council shall each appoint four citizen members. Members appointed by the Mayor shall be confirmed by the City Council.
