Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee

The Albemarle County School Board is accepting applications from county residents who are interested in serving their community as a member of the Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee and the School Health Advisory Board. 

The School Board will be appointing individuals to serve on the Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee representing the Jack Jouett, Rivanna, Scottsville, and White Hall Magisterial Districts as well as a member at-large.

Term of office is two years.

The Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee is responsible for developing capital improvement program recommendations for the Superintendent. Committee members must reside in the magisterial district they represent, with the exception of the at-large seat, which can be held by any resident of the county. Among the issues, the committee will research, review and make recommendations on school program capacity; enrollment and projections; transportation and operating efficiencies related to facilities planning; creative financing and construction strategies; scope of renovations; school closures and new schools; student accommodation planning; and the division’s requirements for innovative learning environments to accommodate its 21st century instructional model and associated technology resources.

The importance of this work is heightened by the county’s continuing enrollment growth trend and by facilities that, in some cases, have not been modernized in decades.

Applicants should have an interest in or experience with school facilities and capital improvement program planning; demographics and economics; elementary, middle and high school programs and needs; public outreach and communication; and/or municipal design and construction. Members are expected to interact and communicate with the School Board and the public through work sessions and community and focus group meetings.

School Health Advisory Board

The School Board will be appointing individuals to serve on the School Health Advisory Board representing the Jack Jouett, Rio, Rivanna, Samuel Miller, Scottsville, and White Hall Magisterial Districts, along with an at-large member and an additional health professional member.

Term of office is two years.

The School Health Advisory Board assists with the development of health policy in the School Division and the evaluation of the status of school health, health education, the school environment, and health services.  Meetings are held at least semi-annually and will annually report on the status and needs of student health in the School Division to any relevant school, the School Board, the Virginia Department of Health, and the Virginia Department of Education.

The School Board may request that the School Health Advisory Board recommend to the School Board procedures relating to children with acute or chronic illnesses or conditions, including, but not limited to, appropriate emergency procedures for any life-threatening conditions and designation of school personnel to implement the appropriate emergency procedures.
