In the meantime, lawmakers in Annapolis have come up with what appears to be the best proposal to date for changing the composition of the county's school board. A consensus appears to be developing around the idea of having seven elected members of the board, four appointed members and a student member, starting in 2018. Support also appears to be building for changing the way the appointed members are selected. Now, the governor appoints all 12 members of the board (one each from the seven county council districts, four at-large and one student member) upon the recommendation of the county executive. Lawmakers are also building in elements of a proposal from Del. Adrienne A. Jones, who represents the county's west side, to create a nominating commission for those appointed seats that would include a diverse array of perspectives.
