We need your help to get parent to apply for the new parent position on the Panel for Education Policy (PEP)! Please distribute the attached application to all of your families as soon as possible, details below.
As announced in Friday's End-of-Week Wrap-up, we are encouraging all parents to apply for a position on the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP). This is a new position, added to the PEP by the 2019 amendments to NYS Education Law, for a 2-year term beginning in July 2020. Applications must be submitted to FACE at CCECInfo@schools.nyc.gov by June 26, 2020. Please distribute today the application form to all parents in your schools.
Any parent with a child currently currently attending a New York City public school is eligible to apply; experience with the New York City public school system, especially as a parent leader and/or advocate will be a plus.
Applications will be reviewed by a Nominating Committee composed of CEC presidents from each borough; the Committee may interview some or all of the applicants before selecting at least three finalists for a final vote by the 32 CEC presidents.
Thank you so much for getting this information to our families and supporting parent voice on the PEP. Please let us know if you have any questions on the process.
The FACE Team
