Grasmick to head Howard County education panel

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman announced he has appointed retired state school superintendent Nancy Grasmick to chair a study commission to review the structure of the Howard County Board of Education and develop recommendations for possible improvements.

The panel will submit proposals by Sept. 26 for how a local education system’s governing body can best reflect the community it serves. Ulman said he was responding to the concerns of residents and community groups “who feel they don’t have a voice on the school board.”

He also named eight other people – six private citizens and two elected officials – to seats on the commission.
